Next David Crowder with R.V, Anderson Associates Limited will present “Extending the life of a Large Diameter Horseshoe- Shaped Combined sewer in Hamilton using a GRP Liner”. He will discuss a large diameter sewer inspection program with the City of Hamilton that has been effective at identifying sewers that are at risk of future failure and a rehabilitation program using grouted‐in‐place GRP. 

Last, Ghassan Saket from Andrews Engineer will present “Toronto Sewer Inspection and Condition Assessment”. He will talk about consulting engineering services for the City of Toronto to plan, coordinate and execute all CCTV inspections, MH inspections and required cleaning. 

Attendees are welcomed to participate in the Q&A session that will follow the presentations.
