New this year, we are hosting a Student Competition at the Pipelines 2022 Conference. The competition will introduce basic concepts to students which will increase their knowledge as they enter the workforce. The competition is open to all undergraduate students within the US and Canada. Winners will be awarded a full Conference registration to the UESI Pipelines 2022 Conference in Indianapolis, July 31 – August 3, 2022, and a $600 stipend.
Students will be grouped into teams upon arrival. Teams will be provided CCTV footage for a section of sanitary sewer pipe to code using NASSCO requirements. Plans and/or SUE data will also be provided showing other utilities or constraints in the area. Students will visit preset vendors within the vendor hall to determine possible replacement or rehabilitation options. The teams will develop the most feasible, cost effective method to repair the defects within the sewer. Participants will also prepare a presentation and conduct a short question and answer session.
Apply today! Application deadline extended to March 7, 2022.
