Reaping the Benefits of Sewer & Culvert Rehabilitation – Trenchless Solutions for DOTs

Trenchless technologies have been the go-to method for water and sewer pipeline rehabilitation for more than 40 years. The same cannot be said for culverts, but the tide is slowly and steadily turning as more and more owners are applying trenchless technologies to culvert and drainage structure work.

This free webinar will offer a perspective from industry experts about the state of the market and the role trenchless technologies can and should play in the rehabilitation of these structures.

Watertight Connections for Microtunneling and Concrete Applications

Hamilton Kent

Hamilton Kent has partnered with some of the leading microtunneling contractors and pipe producers to create gasket solutions for microtunneling projects across North America. Ensuring watertight connections for microtunneling applications is extremely important. A failure at a connection point can be costly to fix and, once the installation is completed, a leaking or damaged joint will weaken the soil over time and could cause issues like sinkholes. Hamilton Kent designs products with this in mind to ensure that quality and performance will meet or exceed project specifications. This webinar will cover our microtunneling product offering as well as present a few case studies where microtunneling contractors and pipe producers ensured watertight connections by choosing Hamilton Kent products.

Adding GPR to your Utility Locating Toolbox


Join us for this live event – a free, 1-hour educational webinar.

Residential and commercial inspectors, electricians, and utility contractors are finding that using ground penetrating radar (GPR) provides a host of safety, efficiency, and revenue benefits.

Rather than relying as-builts and local knowledge to avoid unintentional digging into an underground utility line, many utility locating professionals are adding GPR technology to their locating toolbox to enhance accuracy on the job site.

Third-Party D-Load Testing of Spray-Applied Liners

Join us for this live event – a free, 1-hour educational webinar. The Trenchless Technology Webinar will be focused on the Third-Party testing that was performed utilizing a D-Load testing station in 2018.  The testing performed consisted of 48” RCP.  Two pieces were D-Load tested without any polymer coating.  The pressure needed to create a .01” wide crack running down the lateral side of the pipe was recorded.  This cracking simulates a “failure” in the tested pipe.  Six additional 48” RCP’s were precracked to the same .01” width.  These pipes were then lined with a structural polyurethane liner with 250 mils, 500 mil and 1000 mils being applied in two 48” RCP’s at the respective thicknesses.

After lining the six pipes, they were all tested using the same methodology in the D-Load testing station.  The lined pipes were loaded until Ultimate Failure occurred.  This Webinar goes through the testing and compares the end results with the unlined RCP with the 250, 500 and 1000 mil lined pipes.

Learn about ultra-high-build epoxy liners and how they are an upgrade to traditional epoxy coatings


Learn more about the differences between traditional coatings and what an applied ultra-high-build epoxy lining solution offers. Join Epoxytec to learn exactly what an applied ultra-high-build epoxy lining system is, when to choose them, and what other factors they can bridge compared to traditional coatings.

Today’s rehab and lining solutions offer end-users and asset owners a vast menu of technologies to choose from, including polymer coatings, such as epoxy coatings. The current range of coatings has also evolved. Traditional epoxy “paint” coatings that were designed some decades ago for simple immersion-grade protection against corrosion have been tuned up. Now, innovative manufacturers of coatings are offering completely overhauled applied polymer coating and lining products, bringing them into a category of their own – a category of applied ultra-high-build polymer lining.

An Integrated Approach to HDD Design and Optimized Construction

Integrated Trenchless Engineering Inc,Laney Group, Inc.

The installation of horizontal directional drill (HDD) crossings has become one of the most common trenchless methods for installing pipelines in the oil and gas, municipal, power transmission, and wind generation industries.  Engineers are often asked to design an HDD installation for a project, but most have little knowledge of how to properly design an HDD that is constructible and reduces the risk of hydraulic fracture and drilling fluid surface release.

As engineers and constructors of HDD installations, we see many HDD designs that are not constructible as originally designed.  As a result, we often redesign many of the HDD installations we construct. Based on our experience, we have developed an integrated approach to design our HDD installations.  This workshop will go beyond the basics of HDD design and share ideas and concepts that will help engineers better understand the need for an integrated approach to the design process to optimize construction.

Delivering Reliability, Resiliency and Sustainability

Logistec Sanexen

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, water infrastructure resiliency is more important than ever. On June 2, Cornell University’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering issued its final Report “Performance Evaluation of Aqua-Pipe under Earthquake-Induced Ground Deformation” which details technical findings confirming that SANEXEN’s next-generation of water technology is proven to withstand severe earthquake conditions and natural disasters.

Experts Martin Bureau, VP Innovation at SANEXEN and Benoit Côté, President of SANEXEN Water will share how the resiliency achieved by the Aqua-Pipe technology has exceeded all known standards and outperformed every other solution on the planet and what it means for cities and municipalities across North America.

The webinar will outline how the next-generation of water technology delivers the highest degree of resiliency, reliability as well as being sustainable for the environment and the economy.
