After years of collaboration and development with multiple authorities, a new learning resource for solving infiltration and inflow (I&I) issues in sanitary and storm water systems is launching June 28, 2017. “Fundamentals of Municipal Grouting” is a 16-module video series designed as an interactive learning experience for those who need-to-know and want-to-solve the I&I problems destroying our underground systems.
After years of collaborating on grout schools, webinars, and live field-day demonstrations, experts from Avanti International (material producer), Aries Industries (grout truck manufacturer), and Logiball (remote packer manufacturer) joined forces in the name of education to produce this video series.
“For over a decade, these three companies have prioritized education by hosting grout schools, webinars, and live field-day presentations. Video-based training is a perfectly natural extension of this education initiative and an important asset to teach the fundamentals of injection grouting to specifying engineers, municipal stakeholders, as well as the management, estimators, and technician teams of specialty contracting organizations,” said Daniel Magill, president of Avanti. “Beyond the fundamentals, our hands-on grout schools will continue to provide personalized instruction throughout the year. ‘Fundamentals of Municipal Grouting’ is a perfect pre-requisite and base knowledge for grout schools.”
Beginning with the History of Sewers (Lesson 1) through Standard Specifications (Lesson 16), the video series delves deep into grout chemistry and safety, conveyance technologies and techniques, and holistically targets all infiltration points of entry: mainline sewers, manholes, service laterals and connections. Produced in high-definition broadcast quality and comprehensive in content, this video series is unlike any other resource serving the trenchless technology industry.
Access is complementary and a $49 admin fee will be assessed for engineers requiring PDH credits. Municipal stakeholders and specialty contractors now have a self-paced training and education resource to enable both technical and operational personnel at no cost. When the owner, engineer and contractor share a common knowledge source and execute accordingly, quality outcome is the result.
Infiltration is destroying the integrity of our collection systems. Municipalities are looking for the most economical, practical, and long-term solution to reduce maintenance and eliminate 50 percent of the flow to treatment facilities (according to EPA). “Fundamentals of Municipal Grouting” is a meaningful step to understanding the practice, the technologies, and the science behind injection grouting.
