Available to the entire industry, live attendance at upcoming webinars is free and includes CEU or PDH credits.

Past webinars were recorded and are available to view anytime at nassco.org/webinars. Technical webinars to date include the following:

Remaining Useful Life of Gravity Pipe Assets

Kicking off the series in 2020, NASSCO’s Technical Advisory Council presented the important topic of remaining useful life of gravity pipe assets. The webinar begins with an overview of the history of PACP and remaining useful life. Taking PACP to the next level, the webinar continues with answers to why most gravity pipes fail, a discussion on condition assessment for remaining useful life, extending remaining useful life and managing risk. Case studies for both small- and large-diameter pipe are shared and followed up with a discussion on the purpose of renovation, how long we can make it last, the importance of understanding design and quality assurance and understanding failure modes. Sponsored by NASSCO member companies AECOM, Brown and Caldwell, Hazen, Jerry Weimer Consulting, Pipetek and Redzone Robotics, this webinar was recorded and is available to view anytime at www.nassco.org/webinars.

Lateral Ownership: Pros and Cons

In the spring of 2021 NASSCO’s Lateral Committee presented the pros and cons of lateral ownership. A hot topic for system owners and private property owners alike, the webinar starts with an overview of the responsibilities of each. Pros and cons are discussed, including challenges of ownership, economic benefit, identifying defects, eliminating unwanted flow, regulatory compliance and funding, private versus public cost, and social and administrative benefit. Renewal methods and options are outlined, and two important case studies from the municipal perspective are shared. Thanks to NASSCO member companies BLD, EQUIX, GRANITE Inliner, Logiball, Prime Resins and Trelleborg for sponsoring this important webinar, available for viewing at nassco.org/webinars.

CIPP and Styrene Emission Best Practices

On Nov. 4, in partnership with our Health and Safety Committee, NASSCO’s Technical Advisory Council’s webinar explores why styrene emissions in the cured-in-place pipe process may be a concern. A recap of ongoing NASSCO-sponsored research results over the past several years will be reviewed. Engineering controls for styrene discharges and emissions will also be discussed, along with a special presentation on monitoring equipment and strategies for styrene emissions. For those attending the free, live webinar on Nov. 4, CEU or PDH credits will be available. Register today at www.nassco.org/events.

Coming Soon, Pressure Pipe

NASSCO’s Pressure Pipe Committee looks forward to a 2022 Webinar on the topic of pressure pipe rehabilitation with a special focus on force mains.
