South Central Chapter Trenchless Technology Conference – Arlington, TX

Join us in sunny Arlington at the University of Texas at Arlington campus for a day of trenchless presentations highlighting new technologies, recent and upcoming projects in the region, and plenty of networking opportunities.

August 12 | Afternoon/Evening Reception and Exhibitor Set-up
August 13 | Full-day Conference, Technical Sessions, and Exhibition
August 14 | HDD and Pipe Bursting Good Practice Course

This event is a great opportunity to network, build relationships, and develop business opportunities with attendees and exhibitors from all aspects of underground infrastructure including public works officials, utility company personnel, oil and gas companies, engineers, underground contractors, industry suppliers and students. Registration includes a complimentary USB of the Conference proceedings.

On the 3rd day of the conference, two NASTT Good Practices Courses will be offered.

The HDD Good Practices Guidelines course provides an in-depth overview of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and covers six topics: (1) operation and application; (2) equipment and materials; (3) planning, including surface and geological investigations, utility surveys, bore planning, and regulations and permitting; (4) jobsite safety; (5) risk reduction, troubleshooting and mitigation; and (6) design.

 

 

Pipe Bursting is the perfect no-dig process to replace an existing line with a completely new, larger pipe — without excavating. This construction technique is recognized as one of the only methods of trenchless rehabilitation that replaces an existing line with a completely new pipe, providing a total pipe replacement and allows for the replacement of an existing pipe with a new line of equal or larger diameter — to maintain or increase flow capabilities.

 

Registration and Sponsorship Opportunities are Available NOW!

 

Northwest Chapter Technical Luncheon – Calgary, AB

Join us for an educational luncheon on Glass Reinforced Polymer GRP liner construction, design, hydraulic capacity, QA/QC, jointing systems, grouting, and other topics relating to the installation of GRP liners.

Andy Sherwin became involved in the sewer and infrastructure business in 1992 and has extensive field, sales and Management experience in pipe maintenance, rehabilitation and industrial cleaning. In 1992, while employed by Thames Water Services Group in London, England, Andy gained invaluable knowledge of cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) Lining, Spray Applied Lining and GRP Slip-Lining.

NASTT Welcomes Mexico Regional Chapter

August 3, 2021, was a significant day for North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) as the 12th and latest Regional Chapter was formed, covering the 32 states of Mexico.

Matthew Izzard, NASTT Executive Director and Alan Goodman, Chair of the Board of Directors, met with founding members Sergio Alvarado (Underground Construction Equipment Mexico), Chapter President; Adrian Cordero (Tubepol), Chapter Vice-President; Itzel Mora (Tubemas), Secretary; and Caesar Alvarado (Hammerhead), Executive Officer for the inaugural meeting of the NASTT Mexico Regional Chapter – MEXTT.

The addition of this Chapter offers complete coverage of the North American continent for NASTT with Mexico joining the three Canadian and eight United States Chapters in the Society.

The NASTT Board, under Craig Vandaelle, formed an initiative group to create the Chapter, with Board Members Tiffanie Mendez and Alan Ambler central to its development and working with Itzel Mora to engage volunteers in the creation of the new chapter. This culminated in the inaugural meeting and formation of the Regional Chapter Board to provide local engagement to the members in developing trenchless technology knowledge and education.

MEXTT President, Sergio Alvarado commented: “I am very grateful for the opportunity to be one of the founding members and to be elected president of MEXTT, as well as recognizing my colleagues Itzel Mora, Adrian Cordero, Eduardo Ortegon and Cesar Alvarado who are part of this executive board.

We are very excited about the future growth of our association, and we will be preparing our work plan in the short, medium and long term to publicize the benefits that we can bring to our members through the different existing trenchless technologies for the benefit of the projects of infrastructure generated in Mexico.”

NASTT Chair, Alan Goodman added: “NASTT has been blessed to work with five incredible people that are passionate about bringing trenchless technology to every corner of Mexico.  On the historic day of August 3rd, 2021 the Mexico Chapter was formed and inaugurated into NASTT.  Whether it be new installation or rehabilitation the Mexico Chapter wants to educate all sectors (municipalities, state agencies, utilities, contractors, and engineering firms) in all industries including water, sewer, gas, power, fiber and telecommunications.  Watch this Mexico Chapter grow, and we can’t wait to learn more about the future conferences and Good Practices Courses offered in Spanish.”

An opening webinar to outline the Chapters activities, introduce members and how to be involved is planned for early 2022 followed by in-person events. This includes the delivery of NASTT’s Introduction to Trenchless Technology Good Practices Courses, translated to Spanish with the assistance of grant funding from International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT). Work is also starting on a website and membership magazine and many other initiatives. If you are interested in being involved, please contact us at info@nastt.org.

In expanding their activities and delivery of trenchless technology education in Spanish to a wider audience, NASTT and MEXTT look forward to another exciting Chapter in NASTT history.
