September is Trenchless Technology Month on a Global Scale

At Express Sewer & Drain we have continued to add leading edge equipment that we use for our plumbing jobs and rent to local plumbers for their use (we brag because of the GREAT service to plumbing contractors this provides) That said, we want to talk about the “Trenchless World Congress” in Columbia. Held by the CISTT, in conjunction with the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT) this event highlights the advancement in trenchless technology.

As you see, trenchless sewer repair is a global phenomenon that is being discussed on an International scale. Cities and municipalities across the globe are looking for cost effective methods to repair aging sewer systems – and trenchless technology is the answer.

From September 25 – 27, the Trenchless World Congress will be held at the Plaza Mayor Medellin. The event will show first-hand the newest technologies for trenchless sewer repair, and the opportunity to learn the operations of a wide variety of products directly from company experts.

Columbia is currently using trenchless technology to replace their aging sewer lines, many of which are over 50 years old. The focus of their efforts has brought together the use of CIPP, Pipe Bursting, Micro tunneling, Auger boring, and ramming, impact moling, close fit slip lining, and directional drilling. With an 18-year history of using trenchless technologies, Columbia is leading the way in sewer line repair using these techniques and is an ideal location for this event.

The Trenchless World Congress gives participants the opportunity to speak with experts from affiliated organizations, as well as Senior Directors and Managers. The event is expected to attract leaders from the international contractors from around the globe. Consultants and contractors are expected from South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Chile, and Puerto Rico. With so much knowledge under one-roof, ideas can flow together to find new solutions for sewer line, replacement projects.
