                               Peter Stacey 

                 Trainer & committee for Essex

I started my drainage career in 1970, with a company in north London, in 1975 I started working for Dyno-Rod as Senior field engineer & Forman, from there I worked my way up to 

assistant branch Manager in 1977 until 1979 when I became a Branch manager, in 1983 I became SE regional sales manager for the next 5 years until  I became an independent franchise of Dyno-Rod until 

1988 when  set up my own drainage company Fullbore Drain Services.

The vast array of the roles I have fulfilled whilst with the Dyno Rod group of companies has enabled me to engage directly in many types of specialist type scenarios all of which were considered to be technical related.

Together with my colleagues who sat on the company owned technical committee, I was involved as well as instrumental in the co-writing of the Dyno Rod Health & Safety Policy.

I personally wrote the surveyors training manual which was subsequently used to train all new surveyors who joined the company.

The class training course which individuals were subsequently put through during their induction to the company was delivered entirely by me alone. Peter is also one of the founders of NADC.

Martin has worked in the drainage industry for almost 30 years having started in the summer of 1989. After various positions with Dyno, Drain Doctor, Titmas & JM Murphy (Sewers) Martin formed his own drainage company

             Mike Sheehy

   Training Committee Ireland

Delivering cutting edge equipment and solutions to the water and wastewater industry:

I have been working in the water and wastewater industry since 1998. I am a qualified electronic engineer and gain the most satisfaction when creating solutions for my customers’ problems. 

Having spent many years working in the contracting side of this industry I gained a lot of valuable experience across a range of equipment and operations covering sewer cleaning, inspection and rehabilitation.

In 2008 I left the contracting side of this industry and established UTS Ltd which specialises in the supply, service and hire of a wide range of specialist equipment and machinery used in the maintenance of 

water and wastewater networks. Drawing on my previous experience, product knowledge and background in engineering, I always aim to deliver the best solution for my customers by advising on the most suitable

 equipment or designing bespoke solutions where necessary.


                  Ray Smith

 Trainer & Committee for Bristol


                         Ian Cameron
                   Trainer for Bristol

I initially trained as an electrical engineer for the MOD but moved into the water industry around 1986 and have been there ever since.

The first drainage company I worked for was a family business comprising of just the three of us. A lot of hard work and effort turned this small affair into something much larger.

 As a qualified pipe condition classifier and a Street works Supervisor I was team leader of a CCTV crew carrying out condition surveys for local water authorities, section 104 surveys, highway drainage surveys. Some of this work involved point asset information capture for HADDMS purposes and GIS integration.

We were also involved in remedial works and my role involved estimating, license application, specification, tracing, signing and guarding and supervision of works that were in the public highway, foot ways or verge.

I was also in close contact with local environmental officers involving section 59 works, often carrying out on site practical training with new officers.

Our clients included South West Water, Highways Agency, Local Authorities, FM companies, Housing Associations and Civil Engineering groups, amongst many others.

So, I’ve been involved in just about every aspect of the drainage industry from unblocking domestic drains to managing high value sewer condition survey work.

My interest in IT and experience in CCTV investigation lead to the development of a software application that enables CCTV reporting to the British Standard (BS EN 13508). 

The application is called Viewline and is very easy to use and competitively priced. We provide an excellent customer support service, which is key to any business success. 

We have recently gained approval from the WRc for our domestic/light commercial reporting product, Viewline 550.
