RJN Engineers Presenting at UCT Conference

Fort Worth, Texas, January 20, 2017 - RJN Engineers Derek Schwanke, P.E.; Chris Brooks, P.E.; and Amanda Gentry, E.I.T., will be presenting at the Underground Construction Technology (UCT) International Conference & Exhibition on Tuesday, January 31, 2017, at the Fort Worth Convention Center.



Details about these presentations are as follows—

Presentation Title: TRA Walker-Calloway Outfall: An Aging Inimitable Infrastructure System
Date: January 31, 2017
Time: 9:30 AM to 9:55 AM
Presenters: Derek Schwanke, P.E., Project Manager, RJN, and Marco Ramirez, P.E., Engineer-Planning & Development, TRA
Location: TRACK 1A, Fort Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston St., Fort Worth, Texas

Description: This discussion of the Walker-Calloway Outfall Trunk Sewer System will provide an overview of the overall strategy employed by RJN and Trinity River Authority (TRA) to rehabilitate the system. Highlights include the use of cutting-edge CCTV technology, hydraulic modeling, and a detailed seven-phase design plan with the main goals of minimizing costs and impact to the customer cities that discharge flow into the system.

Presentation Title: Interceptor Design Challenges Working Around Buried Utilities
Date: January 31, 2017
Time: 11 AM to 11:25 AM
Presenters: Chris Brooks, P.E., Senior Project Manager, RJN, and Amanda Gentry, E.I.T., Staff Engineer, RJN
Location: TRACK 1C, Fort Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston St., Fort Worth, Texas

Description: Through real-world examples, this presentation will illustrate the complexities and challenges of designing large-diameter gravity sewer interceptors around buried utilities. Since there is often inaccurate, incomplete, or otherwise missing information concerning the location and depth of high-pressure gas lines and fiber optic cables, the design engineer must often figure out resourceful ways to manage, mitigate, and avoid these underground conflicts.
