TAC Webinar - Remaining Useful Life of Gravity Pipe Assets

NASSCO’s Technical Advisory Council's Webinar: “Remaining Useful Life of Gravity Pipe Assets” - The 90-minute Remaining Useful Life (RUL) program explores:

  • The role of the PACP™ condition assessment and pipe RUL
  • Engineering judgment considerations for defining RUL
  • Expectations from rehabilitation strategies and RUL
  • Utility owner perspectives for inspection, evaluation and renewal of pipe assets


NASSCO's PACP™ Overview

This short video contains a high-level look at NASSCO’s Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACP) and includes reasons for and general approaches to closed circuit television inspection, why coding standardization is important, features and benefits of PACP, review of the coding families, coding examples and how system owners use datasets derived from PACP inspections. 


The National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) is a member association for contractors, municipalities, engineers and manufacturers. Working together, NASSCO members set standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure. Watch this brief video to learn more.

Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program

The Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program (PACP ®) is an international standard that has been used for many years for assessment of pipelines, manholes, and laterals. Since 2002, thousands of people have been PACP certified. 

This webcast highlights the significant changes being made to PACP 6.0.1. As a result of an unprecedented review by over 65 collections professionals, an improved version of PACP ® is underway. PACP ® Version 7.0  (release in May 2015) includes technical updates, educational benefits, and a more user friendly format.

This webcast was sponsored by NASSCO with the support of Jack Doheny Companies, Inc. and t4 Spatial.

Laterals - Assessment, Rehabilitation & Results

Learn about why the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) chose to perform lateral inspections and rehabilitation as well as how they perform this work. Highlights will include lessons learned along the way and how the process was improved as a result of these lessons learned. 

Service lateral connection lining is a unique and emerging rehabilitation product that is rapidly becoming a commonplace recommendation for removing infiltration from defective service laterals and/or their connections’ to the mainline pipe. However, there are many different products available in the marketplace that must first be evaluated to ensure that the proper product is being recommended. There are a myriad of options one must consider when recommending service lateral connection lining for rehabilitation programs. Gain valuable working knowledge on how to make product decisions and ask the important questions when evaluating the feasibility of service lateral connection lining options and deciding what type of service lateral connection liner to recommend for their application.

Speakers include: 

Shawn Peters, Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission 

Jonathan Kunay, P.E. – CDM Smith

Jason Waterbury, P.E. - Metropolitan District Commission

This webinar addressed some of today's top challenges and solution alternatives for the trenchless repair or replacement of sewer lateral lines.  Case studies were presented that discussed ownership and access on private property, environmental considerations, effectiveness of methods and materials chosen, and decision matrix followed in selecting those solutions.  The lessons learned are guiding the path for NASSCO and other organizations to improve industry standards and guidelines that may assist Owners and Specifiers facing the need to more effectively address trenchless lateral repair or replacement to reduce sewer backups, overflows and infiltration.
