All pre-event courses will be held on Tuesday May 15, 2018

Trenchless Technologies 101
Location: DoubleTree by Hilton, Grand Ballroom East Room
The Trenchless Technology 101 course is for both newcomers to the industry and for anyone who is seeking a refresher course on the various trenchless technology methods. The course covers new trenchless construction techniques including tunneling, open shield pipe jacking, microtunneling, auger boring, pipe ramming, and horizontal directional drilling. It reviews available trenchless rehabilitation methods used to rehabilitate existing infrastructure (i.e. storm, sanitary and watermain) and it concludes with tips to ensure successful trenchless projects. Each presenter will cover details of the key steps involved in planning and executing a successful trenchless project as it relates to their respective technology.

Watermain Renovation Using Structural, Semi-Structural and Non-Structural Lining Systems
Location: DoubleTree by Hilton, Queen Victoria Room
This workshop will present various types of watermain lining systems to address hydraulic, water quality and structural issues. The industry’s leading experts will discuss strategies to develop highly cost-effective renovation programs for water distribution system. Recent advancements in watermain renovation using polyurea lining systems will be presented. The workshop emphasis will be on the planning, process, design, and QA/QC to ensure successful completion of renovation projects using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) system. The workshop will be of interest to municipalities, water utilities, consultants, and contractors who would like to develop their expertise in this rapidly evolving field.

Planning Trenchless with Subsurface Utility Engineering:
Location: Suite 300, DoubleTree by Hilton
Time: 7:45 AM
Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) provides designers and engineers with the tools to determine how the existing infrastructure will be affected by a project so they can make adjustments and plan ahead to minimize impacts. This workshop will give an overview of SUE tools, techniques and applications. It will discuss CI/ASCE 38-02: Standard Guidelines for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data published in 2003.  The standard is the backbone for the practice of SUE.

Sewer Laterals: A Comprehensive Review of Best Practices
Location: Suite 300, DoubleTree by Hilton
Time: 1:00 PM
This half day workshop will address technical limitations, design and installation issues, as well as available techniques for maintaining, rehabilitating and replacing sewer laterals and connections. The information will be presented by qualified and experienced professional using case studies, field observations where effective laterals program have been developed.
