Damage investigation class in Brenham a great success

The damage investigation class in Brenham was an incredible success.

The class had over 70 participants, excellent presentations by Robert Botello of Heath Consultants, Stephanie Wiedeman with the Railroad Commission, Doug Meeks of Texas811 and Ford Femal of EGW Utilities.

The planning and coordination of the class was done by Ande Bostain and Debbie Gaffey of the City of Brenham.

The class had presentations on damage investigation principles and then an opportunity for hands-on investigation of two damages to a pipeline. The purpose of the investigation was to document the damages, determine fault and prepare the information to report the incident to the Railroad Commission.

When the investigation was complete, the records were taken back to the classroom and critiqued by the group. The six groups all worked together to document, use hit kits, photograph the incident and complete the forms for reporting. They all worked well together and the results were excellent.

This was a great learning situation and everyone left with greater knowledge of the requirements for investigating in a proper manner.
