share, network, and learn about best practice and technology advances in
pipeline assessment and management. We also use these events to showcase our
technologies, to discuss research in progress and to solicit input from
customers to identify technology needs. We have received many compliments from

the delegates commented on the quality of our people, which was apparent from
the success of the various demonstrations and presentations made by our
staff," said Jack Elliott, COO for Pure Technologies.

including condition assessment and monitoring projects undertaken by the City
of Calgary, San Diego County Water Authority, City of Montreal and The Great
Man-Made River Authority. Field demonstrations of Pure's latest innovations
for pipeline condition assessment including leak detection; structural
acoustic monitoring and monitoring for third-party damage were also conducted.
    A panel discussion of industry experts was facilitated by Dr. Sam
Ariaratnam, Professor, Dell Webb School of Construction at Arizona State
University. The session's topic focused on the challenges facing owners in
budgeting condition assessment programs and also explored the importance of
partnering with technology companies to develop tools to better assess
