NASSCO Joins UESI as Charter Organizational Member

UESI ASCE LogoThe National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) was recently announced as a charter organizational member of the Utility Engineering & Surveying Institute (UESI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

This partnership furthers UESI’s mission to foster a collaborative and growing institute to meet the infrastructure challenges to reduce infrastructure project life cycle costs by 50 percent by 2025. NASSCO joins this growing network of organizations and companies to strengthen the products and services that promote and reward excellence in the engineering, planning, design, construction, operations, and asset management for utility infrastructure and engineering surveying.

Established in 1976, NASSCO sets standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure through the development of specifications, information sharing through committee participation, and training programs such as PACP (Pipeline Assessment Certification Program) and ITCP (Inspector Training Certification Program).

Focusing on trenchless, or “no-dig” technologies, NASSCO is also committed to ensuring the continued acceptance of growth of trenchless technologies through education, public relations, conference participation and member ambassador programs.

NASSCO, a member-driven organization for professionals across North and South America who are involved in keeping underground sewer systems operating at optimum performance, fosters a non-competitive environment.  NASSCO members include contractors who do the work, engineers who specify technologies, system owners (municipalities and other government organizations) who are responsible for the health of their underground systems, companies that manufacture or supply equipment, supplies or services, and individuals, educational institutions and other organizations, such as ASCE, with interests that align with NASSCO’s mission.

“We are grateful for this opportunity to collaborate with ASCE,” said Ted DeBoda, P.E., executive director of NASSCO. “Our partnership will help better address the needs of the engineering community by providing contractor perspectives on ASCE references, such as our current collaboration on MOP 92 for Inspection and Rehabilitation of Manholes, as well as contribute to the ongoing improvements to PACP and ITCP.  Additionally, NASSCO’s Technical Director, Lynn Osborn, is a member of UESI’s Board of Governors so his involvement will serve as a conduit to identify areas where our collaboration can be most effective for the industry.”

An organization or company can join UESI as an organizational member, UESI partner or cooperating organization, including design firms, companies, associations, government agencies, universities and other organizations that support the mission and objectives of the UESI.

UESI is the worldwide leader in generating products and services that promote and reward excellence in the engineering, planning, design, construction, operations, and asset management for utility infrastructure and engineering surveying. UESI offers civil engineering and surveying professionals working within the utility and pipelines engineering and the surveying communities a recognizable home which they can join to collectively work to improve our profession.

The UESI currently has five active divisions in Pipeline, Standards, Surveying & Geomatics, Utility Infrastructure Asset Management, and Utility Risk Management. For more information visit asce.org/uesi
