Advancing Standards

NASSCO’s updated Manual of Practice now available online.

Late last year, after many months of hard work by its Infrastructure Assessment Committee, NASSCO released the 2018 Manual of Practice - Trenchless Technology and Asset Management.

Published in partnership with the Water Environment Federation, the Manual of Practice is useful for professionals new to the underground infrastructure industry, as well as experienced operators and inspectors. The manual includes both introductory and advanced topics in asset management, inspection, risk management, flow monitoring, pipe failure prevention, sustainable pipeline systems, bidding, specifications, as well as repair, rehabilitation and replacement methods using trenchless technologies.

First published in 1996, NASSCO’s Manual of Practice has been an important industry tool for more than 20 years. During that time, significant industry changes have occurred and are reflected in the recent release.

While trenchless technologies have advanced, the purpose of the manual has remained the same: to provide a baseline reference for a broad range of disciplines and to provide assessment steps and repair options available to municipal staff and engineers, contractors and consultants. The list doesn’t end there, though; the manual is of extreme value to anyone wanting to know more about methods used in the assessment, maintenance and repair of underground infrastructure.

Assembled in an easy-to-read three-chapter format, each section targets important and timely issues to help achieve NASSCO’s mission to set standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure and to assure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.
