Innovyze InfoMaster Receives Two Prestigious NASSCO Certifications
Industry Premier Accreditation Demonstrates Company’s Commitment to High-Quality Assessment and Rehabilitation of Underground Utilities
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, April 16, 2013
The National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) was formed in 1976 with one goal: To improve the success rate of everyone involved in the pipeline rehabilitation industry through education, technical resources, and industry advocacy. The organization is comprised of contractors, suppliers, engineers, public agencies, and others aligned with the trenchless technology field. Members are required to comprehend the quality and safety issues dealing with rehabilitated pipelines and are active in developing guidelines and specifications that become industry standards. Further information on NASSCO can be found atwww.nassco.org.
“We are pleased to award Innovyze InfoMaster both PACP and MACP certification,” stated Heather Myers, Operations Manager for NASSCO. “The software has succeeded in meeting all our stringent certification criteria for asset management.”
Recognized as the industry standard in the United States since 2001, NASSCO’s PACP is the standard by which sewer pipes are evaluated, coded and managed. It is based on a comprehensive and consistent set of CCTV inspection codes that describe sewer pipe conditions used in prioritizing, planning, and renovating wastewater collection systems. Complementing PACP, MACP provides standardization for grading defects within manholes to ensure a reliable and consistent manhole evaluation system. It is based on two inspection protocols created to better meet the needs of utility owners. The level 1 inspection provides basic condition assessment information to evaluate the general condition of a manhole. The level 2 inspection gathers detailed information to fully document all defects, determine the condition of the manhole, and provide specific information needed to recommend corrective action.
“PACP and MACP certification from NASSCO further reflect the superior quality, utility and value of our industry-leading smart asset management solutions,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “Being recognized as NASSCO certified member is extremely important to Innovyze because our company holds itself to a higher technology standard. We regularly take a critical look at our products to improve the results they deliver to our customers and help them effectively sustain their wet infrastructures and protect the environment and public health.”
