Dave Russell has led the development of technology for the detection of corroded and degraded areas in cast, ductile, steel and now PCCP pipes for the water and wastewater industry since the early 1990s. PICA’s parent company, Russell NDE Systems, designs and manufactures the In-Line Inspection Tools that PICA uses to inspect the pipelines with either a pull-through, or a free-swimming approach. Russell holds an MBA (marketing) and is the recipient of awards from Frost and Sullivan and ASTech Foundation for technology developments related to the water industry.
