Colorado School of Mines – A Reputation for Education

Throughout the year, the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) hosts many different short courses and conferences taught by experienced industry professionals who aim to educate owners, engineers, and contractors in specialty areas. These short courses provide concentrated instruction in areas such as Ground Improvement in Underground Construction and Mining and Grouting Fundamentals. These courses are intensive and provide comprehensive knowledge of the latest and greatest R&D. That’s why we choose to align with the CSM every year – because we believe that education is the way forward – and CSM has a reputation for impeccable education.

Sewer Leak Identification:  Electro Scan Compliments CCTV for Inspection

Public enemy #1 for managers of sanitary sewer collection systems is infiltration. Groundwater and soil fines enter into mainlines, manholes, laterals, and lateral connections through joints and defects. According to the EPA, nearly half the water entering treatment plant operations is clean groundwater - a direct result from lack of maintenance. CCTV has long been the most reliable technology for inspecting non-man entry underground assets, but experts agree, visual proof is not 100% conclusive. Enter: Electro Scan.

Chris Hamilton - September 11, 2014 - Views 2488

Since becoming part of the Avanti family, I have met with dozens of grouting contractors and municipal crews with years of experience rehabbing underground structures. Most feel confident in their quality of work, and with balancing efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. As someone who served as an infrastructure restoration contractor for a decade, I know from personal experience how difficult it is to make procedure adjustments, modify processes, and implement subtle improvements.

View this 3-minute, Cole Publishing interview with Don Rigby on how chemical grout stops leaks and provides an infiltration-free environment in manholes, mainlines, and laterals so structural repairs can realize their full life-expectancy.

Direct from Municipal Contractor: Manhole Rehab with AV-100 Outsmarts Water Intrusion

Don Rigby - August 28, 2014 - Views 2990

Customer call backs can be painful. And for one contracting company in Florida their call-backs were just that. It started seven years ago when they chose to align themselves with Brand X (who shall remain nameless) because of a lower price point. After high volumes of call-backs, they moved to Brand Y and then Brand Z, but continued to have unacceptable call-backs. Let’s be real – the manhole rehab business is tricky. In fact, the contractor had to call upon a competing resource to fix problems, and sure enough, this contractor was aligned with Brand A – A for Avanti.

Anyone who has spent time in the military understands and accepts you may have to give your life at some point. No one should be ready or need to give their life rehabilitating a sewer. Sadly and unintentionally, this is what happened here.
