Each year, NASTT forms a committee to select the Outstanding Papers of the Year Awards in Rehabilitation and New Installation published and presented at NASTT’s Annual No-Dig Show. The winners of the Outstanding Paper Awards are selected also based on the feedback received on the completed evaluation forms. Attendee feedback, in combination with the committee’s review, helps determine the winners. Winners are formally recognized during the Kick-Off Breakfast held at NASTT’s Annual No-Dig Show.
The 2016 award winner for New Installation is “Pipe Ramming Through Challenging Subsurface Conditions in the Pacific Northwest” and the 2016 winner for Rehabilitation is “The Path Forward for Pipe Bursting Asbestos Cement Pipe”.
