  • Installation process – line and grade, backfill materials, soil/pipe interaction, construction equipment, repairs, etc.
  • Construction loads – initial construction and future roadway reconstruction efforts
  • Floatation – buoyancy forces
  • Inspection best practices, pre and post installation
  • Failure modes and risks – construction, debris, end of life, ph, abrasion, head pressure, loading, UV, etc. Failures will be covered in detail to instill the need to follow the standards recommended for a successful pipe installation with the goal to provide the pipe life that was purchased
  • Asset inventory – recommendations
  • New products – new technologies – new pipe types, liner options, what’s next?
