NPCA professional staff conducted a multi-faceted outreach swing in Texas for the second year in a row. The trip included specifier outreach at an onsite wastewater conference in Waco, and academic outreach at Texas State University in San Marcos.
Director of Outreach & Technical Education Claude Goguen, P.E., attended the 2019 Annual Texas Onsite Wastewater Conference on March 11-13, amongst more than 900 onsite wastewater industry professionals and regulators.
During the conference, Goguen conducted a presentation on precast tank installation best practices to approximately 90 onsite installers, regulators, specifiers and other industry professionals. He was accompanied by co-presenter David Lentz of Infiltrator. In addition to presenting, Goguen was active on the tradeshow floor while exhibiting in the NPCA onsite wastewater booth.
After the conference, Goguen traveled to Texas State University to guest lecture for Dr. Fred Aguyo’s concrete industry management students. The 90-minute presentation covered precast concrete manufacturing with a focus on types of concretes used, and how to design for durability.
