Educational Seminar: PVC Pipe Association Virtual Open House – Specifying, Designing and Installing PVC Water and Sewer Pipe

Parul Dubey on May 16, 2024 - in Announcement, Events

Ideal for Utility Engineers, Designers, Inspectors, Consultants, Contractors, and Government Agencies

According to ASCE’s infrastructure report card, underground water and sewer infrastructure across America is in dire need of repair and replacement. Public funds are in short supply. Today’s marketplace offers North American utilities a wide variety of piping to choose from. Pipe materials can differ significantly in performance capabilities and in the applications for which they are suitable. Find out why more and more utilities are using sustainable, corrosion-proof PVC pipe and why a PVC pipe replacement program or new project installation is the right choice for your utility/municipality.

This online educational seminar provides a complete evaluation of PVC pipe applications in an interactive format ideal for long-time as well as new users of PVC water and sewer piping. PVC Pipe Association (PVCPA) staff engineers will review the technical information available to make the best choices for your community. Learn how to specify, design, install and operate one of the most versatile and low-maintenance pipe materials in use. Participate in two, three-hour courses over two days and obtain everything you need to know about PVC water and sewer pipe. Get up to 6.0 PDHs! Or just sign up for one course covering the PVC pipe subject of your choice (3.0 PDHs).
