PICA in 2013!

February 28, 2013 Leave a comment

While the blog has been a little quiet since the New Year, that doesn’t mean the PICA team has been.

January started off with Bill Jappy and Chris Garrett attending the Vancouver and Seattle Water Research Foundation Condition Assessment Workshops, respectively. Bill and Chris were pleasantly surprised at the amount of presentation time committed to discussing the SeeSnake tool. The SeeSnake was positively mentioned in many presentations, whether discussing previous work from California to Canada or talking about the prospects of how to best utilize the technology going forward. Be sure to stop by the WRF website to access the PowerPoint slides. Lots of good information available there.

February was busy with site visits and customer meetings. Also of note, PICA joined NASSCO and participated in its annual conference. Chris traveled to the Florida Keys to make a brief presentation, meet lots of engaged and impressive industry leaders and to play a little golf (Editor’s note: Chris did not tell us his golf score…) PICA is looking forward to joining some NASSCO committees and contributing to this great organization.

Lastly, March is fast approaching and that means NASTT No-Dig. Bill and Chris will be hosting the PICA booth (#326). Also be sure to catch Chris’s presentation with Kelly Derr of Brown & Caldwell. On Tuesday morning at 8:30am, these two gentlemen will be discussing the advantages of the SeeSnake, specifically in regard to a recent contract in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. If you are attending the Sacramento conference, be sure to drop by and say hello!

PICA forms strategic alliance with 3M

February 26, 2013 Leave a comment

PICA is pleased to announce that it has formed a strategic alliance with 3M’s Infrastructure Protection Division this week. While PICA is known for its direct condition assessment of ferrous pipe materials, 3M offers drinking water pipe rehabilitation solutions that may be installed as a non-structural corrosion coating, semi-structural lining or AWWA Class IV rehabilitation solution.

This means that water utilities can customize their lining specifications to their pipe condition and optimize the way they spend their rehabilitation dollars.

For more information on this exciting alliance, read our press release or visit us at our websites: 3M  PICA.
