As a 501 c (6) trade association, it is NASSCO’s responsibility to advocate for the entire underground industry. We do this by building awareness of our aging underground infrastructure to ensure government funding is available to keep our communities safe. We also work to assure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies as viable solutions to minimize disruption to our environment while providing safe, cost-effective assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation methods.

  • Protecting Trenchless Technology

    NASSCO is the first line of defense to minimize the need to dig up and replace underground infrastructure. We do this through the advocacy and promotion of trenchless (or “no dig”) technologies to benefit communities and our world.
