The sixth Utility Investigation School (UIS) will be held on 16–19 December 2019 at the Colorado School of Mines in Colorado, US.
Due to the continued increase in the number of subsurface utility hits per year in the US, Colorado has taken the lead in passing legislation which mandates that Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) utilising ASCE 38-02 be incorporated into excavation projects.
To address this legislation, the American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) has teamed up with the Buried Asset Management Institute-International (BAMI-I) to hold the four-day USI.
This short course will provide practitioners with the knowledge and tools to complete competent utility investigations in accordance with accepted national standards (ASCE 38).
The course will include 3 days of lecture series, including testing, and a one day field practicum where participants will be offered hands-on experience with trenchless tools.
The USI program is designed for engineers, surveyors and project managers of utility investigations as well as regulatory agencies, state departments of transport and local governments, who will additionally recieve 40 professional development hours and a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
Registration includes manuals, daily refreshments and lunches and a dinner on the Wednesday evening.
