Who are we

The South Central Regional Chapter of NASTT is a non-profit organization established to promote Trenchless Technology education and development for public benefit in Texas and Oklahoma. The South Central chapter is a regional member of the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT)

One of the primary objectives of the chapter is to provide opportunities to advance the science and practice of Trenchless Technology by promoting and conducting training and education through seminars and conferences, as well as promoting the development of students in the trenchless technology field through such training as well as scholarships.

Trenchless Technology encompasses the subsurface construction works where fewer trenches/excavations are required. The construction methodologies under the banner of Trenchless Technology allow for the installation of new or replacement/rehabilitation of existing underground infrastructure with minimal disruption to surface traffic, businesses, environmentally sensitive areas, or other surficial concerns.
