New Orleans, it’s not too soon to remind you about the 89th Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference, also known as, WEFTEC. Perma-Liner Industries wants to see you there. Year after year this state of the art conference is host to numerous, informative sessions on the water industry and the benefits of Cured-in-Place Pipelining. This year will be filled with even more topics and news for your success! And what’s more, it’s right in your backyard so set aside the following dates and register soon!
September 24- 28
New Orleans Morial Convention Center
900 Convention Center Blvd.
The WEFTEC is a not-for-profit technical and educational organization of 33,000 individual members and 75 affiliated Member Associations representing water quality professionals around the world. It is designed to increase awareness and provide a platform for water sector innovation.
Interesting fact: conventional urban stormwater systems collect runoff (a majority of which comes from paved surfaces such as streets, sidewalks, etc.) and convey it through a series of underground pipes and culverts into streams, lakes, and wetlands. Drawbacks to this method include increased flooding downstream, increased stream velocities, higher erosion rates, and reduced water quality. Another issue is sediment buildup in the system, which must be cleaned out at an additional cost to the city and is especially costly in New Orleans due to the massive pumping infrastructure.
If you’re looking for a fun event, in addition to making you’re plans to attend WEFTEC this fall, remember to come out to the Fourth of July spectacular. You’ll see two barges shoot off a dazzling array of sparkling lights along with cosmic sounds on the New Orleans river front. Also, Perma-Liner Industries is planning a Trenchless Tour on July 27th in the New England area. We’ll be posting more information on this must see event…stay tuned! We’ve got lots of plans lined up for you. Click Here to Register!
