Specification Guidelines

The Specification Guidelines contains sample specifications and is full of invaluable information on the installation and rehabilitation of pipelines and manholes as provided by NASSCO members. They were prepared by the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO, Inc.) in response to requests from engineering firms, municipalities and other organizations concerned with sewer collection system maintenance and rehabilitation. The Specification Guidelines are intended to assist engineers and municipal officials to properly specify sewer rehabilitation work and thereby obtain desired long-lasting results.

These guidelines have been published as a service to the industry. The information is offered in good faith and believed to be accurate at the time of its preparation, but is offered without any warranty, expressed or implied. Additional information may be needed in some areas with regard to unusual or special applications. Consult the contractor or supplier for more detailed information. NASSCO does not endorse any products or processes and assumes no responsibilty for compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

We invite all active members to take part in the development of guidelines and specifications. If you are an active member and you have specification that you would like to include here, please email info@nassco.org.

Our goal is to standardize procedures to ensure that in future each and every rehabilitation project is a success.
