Here's what Readers are saying about the Trenchless Technology and Asset Management

The book moves into specific tools and techniques for field implementation of renewal projects. This section examines a wide variety of testing, rehabilitation, and replacement techniques for pipes. It also provides a quick selection criteria for each one that touches on permitting needs, field specification needs, environmental considerations, and general implementation concerns that would be invaluable to field engineers and project managers making decisions in situ.

These tools and techniques are clearly laid out, including valuable contract questions to ensure that specifications and implementation safety needs are described so that the engineer in charge or the field overseer could have a quick reference available immediately. This section of the book is tremendously valuable for not only planning, but also implementation.

Overall, the clarity and ease of use with which information is presented makes it a valuable stand-alone resource and increases the interest in the NASSCO products for a systematic, comprehensive, "off-the-shelf" system that would be very attractive to managers and leaders at any organization, particularly those in charge of setting up financial budgets and project rehabilitation schedules for large systems.
