Plans
“Going into 2012,” said Haines, “NTA’s plans are to develop and provide certified crew-based training programs for our members on an annual basis. The first crew training session was in February with the second scheduled in March. Regarding education, the NTA plans to support the TTC at Louisiana Tech in an upcoming municipal forum in Massachusetts, and to provide trenchless education to engineers, and public and private entities.”

The NTA web site, (www.northeasttrenchlesscom) has evolved into a valuable source of news and association events, member contacts, general industry news, and information about trenchless utility construction that is useful not only to NTA members, but for public works representatives and engineers involved in planning utility construction. Information is updated continuously. Web site sections include overviews of horizontal directional drilling, pipe bursting, pipeline construction and sample project specifications.

“With links to key industry organizations and general information about technologies, the NTA web site truly has become a solid resource for engineers and contractors, wherever they are located,” said Haines.
