February 4/5, 2014 | CATT/OGRA Trenchless Technologies 101
Over the past century, cities across Canada developed and expanded water distribution networks that consist of thousands of kilometres of buried pipelines. Today, many municipalities are faced with the challenge of constructing new pipelines in crowded urban environments, as well as, accessing and renovating aging and deteriorated pipes. This course offers an informative overview of Trenchless Technology as it applies to todays industry. For more information please visit www.ogra.org.

February 6, 2014 | Microtunnelling for Trenchless Projects
This one day workshop will cover a phases of the construction of a stormwater, wastewater, forcemains, watermains, and utility pipelines using the trenchless microtunnelling construction method. Attendees will learn the state-of-the-art of this increasing popular pipeline construction method that only requires entrance and exit shafts to install the pipe on line and on grade through a wide variety of ground conditions. Microtunnelling benefits include reduced risk during construction, large greenhouse gas emission savings, rapid out-of-sight and out-of-mind construction, significant reduction in social and environmental costs.

Industry experts from Canada and Europe will cover the history and development microtunnelling method with special focus on Ontario, provide an overview of microtunnelling equipment, drill fluids, mud recycling, laser control systems, shaft design, and jacking pipe. It will also discuss geotechnical and design considerations for a successful project, project Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) considerations, and development of good project specifications. If you are involved in or will be involved in a microtunnelling project you will not want to miss this unique workshop. For more details and to register, click here.
