EDITOR’S NOTE: In 2016, NASSCO will celebrate its 40th year of setting standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure. As we look forward, we also look back to those who have made significant contributions and have impacted the continued acceptance and use of trenchless technologies.

This month’s story features Mike Hogan, president of Duke’s Root Control. He has been a dedicated NASSCO member since 1988, working tirelessly for the trenchless industry. He served for many years on NASSCO’S Board of Directors, and as NASSCO’s President in 2002. He has also served on the Board of Directors for NASTT, has chaired a variety of NASSCO Committees (including scholarships and awards, as well as industry standards) and was inducted into NASSCO’s Sanitary Sewer Sleuth Society in 2009. This is the third installment in a series of articles exploring the history of NASSCO through the eyes of industry leaders:
