TKDA Presents Infrastructure Renewal Options

TKDA Senior Water/Wastewater Engineer, Bernie Bullert, recently presented water infrastructure renewal options to a group of public works officials and facilities managers at an event at Oakdale City Hall in Oakdale, MN. Bernie was joined by Mitchell Hoeft of Insituform, who provided specific technical solutions for pipe rehabilitation. This was the third in a series of lunch and learn events given by Bernie throughout the Twin Cities Metro and Northland regions. Bernie will give additional presentations in the coming months to other public and private organizations.

The discussion included tools for successful water distribution and collection system management and capital investment, including:

  • Replacement vs. rehabilitation for water mains, force mains, and gravity sewers
  • Cost-effective asset management for water distribution or wastewater collection
  • Technology selection, renewal planning, and winning public support for investment

Senior Registered Engineer Bernie Bullert is a leader in the use of new technologies to reduce long-term infrastructure costs. Dedicated to helping communities move their infrastructure renewal projects forward, he has established water infrastructure rehabilitation programs through his previous leadership roles at Utilities in the Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, as well as providing asset management consulting to Minnesota communities.
