JP Specialties, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of waterstop and waterstop-related concrete accessories. Our NSF 61 certified Earth Shield® line of chemical resistant waterstop is used throughout the world by major engineering firms and project owners for primary and secondary containment applications, as well as industrial wastewater treatment and ozone contactor structures. We invented and hold the patent on the technology used to mechanically weld thermoplastic waterstops . JP Specialties has been in business since 1954.

David R. Poole has been with JP Specialties for the past 18 years and is the president of the company since 2008. David also serves as secretary of American Concrete Institute (ACI) 350 Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures Subcommittee K (Hazardous Materials), and G (Tightness Testing), and also serves as an associate member on Subcommittee A (General and Concrete). David is currently working on committee on the revised “Concrete Structures for Containment of Hazardous Materials” (scheduled for future ACI publishing). An active member of the San Diego Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), and a frequent public speaker, David’s engineering seminars are requested nationwide by major engineering firms including Montgomery Watson Harza, CH2M Hill, Carollo Engineers, Jacobs Engineers, Camp Dresser McKee, Fluor Corp., Kellogg Brown & Root, and many others. David has also taught waterstop theory, technology, and installation to project owners, concrete accessories distributors, and contractors in the field. David has consulted on and written national and international CSI-format 3-part specifications for a variety of engineering firms and governmental agencies including the July 1995 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Master Specification (CEGS 03250).

Waterstops for Chemical Resistance is a targeted course of instruction and professional development for engineering firms engaged in the design of chemical, industrial, and environmental projects such as secondary containment of hazardous waste, industrial wastewater, ozone contactors, and others. The course is technical in nature and describes waterstops role in fluid-proofing concrete joints, chemical resistant polymers and steels, and state and federal regulations of compliance. The course is presented in one (1) hour time frame.

Additionally, course attendees are eligible for Continuing Professional Development credit, as David is a instructor with both the Louisiana Engineering Society and the Louisiana Professional Engineers and Land Surveying Board. Course is certified for one (1) Professional Development Hour credit.
