By Jeff Griffin, Senior Editor | November 2011, Vol. 66 No. 11

As at previous shows, upon entering the RehabZone the first station is the popular Pima County, Arizona Historic Sewer and Pipe Artifacts Exhibit which documents the history of pipes, tools and equipment.

Visitors then follow a route through technology stations that include the NASSCO Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACP) and Inspector Training Certification Program (ITCP), closed circuit television (CCTV), bypass pumping, sectional CIPP lining, joint and seal repairs, water main lining, lateral lining, grouting, root control, manhole linings and coatings, and emerging technologies, plus Live Demo, Skills Challenge and Networking areas.

The RehabZone is sponsored by NASSCO in cooperation with the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Trenchless Installation of Pipelines and Pipeline Infrastructure Systems technical committee, the Water Environment Federation’s Collection System Committee and Underground Construction and Rehabilitation magazine. It is funded by sponsoring organizations and participating companies.

“It’s not too late to make plans to attend UCT and the RehabZone,” said Hermes, “and we urge all in the underground construction and rehabilitation industries not to miss this important opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and the products they use.”

Hermes is president of WBE Dorcas, Inc. Guy Leslie, southern area sales manager for Rapidview, is co-chairperson. It is the second year Hermes and Leslie have served in those capacities.

“The continuing success of the RehabZone,” said Hermes, “is the result of support and funding of our sponsors and the many hours of hard work by dedicated volunteers who plan the event, set-up and staff the individual stations, and all in the interest and benefit of our industry.”

Ongoing educational outreach efforts will continue after the 2012 RehabZone is over, Hermes added.
