The storm water management system has been upgraded along a stretch of highway in Fort Madison, IA, thanks to County Materials’ Reinforced Concrete Pipe. Concrete pipe is designed to last for the life of a project, typically 70-100 years. Plus, technological advances in the research and development of concrete mixes, pipe design, and the manufacturing processes have created a reinforced product that will withstand a wide range of underground environments and effluents.
While Iowa DOT standards specify reinforced concrete pipe for its state’s storm water systems, Jeff Getz of Fye Excavating Inc. in Sperry, IA, specifies County Materials’ Reinforced Concrete Pipe. He writes, “County Materials is by far our preferred supplier, and in recent years is our only supplier.” Fye Excavating trusts that our reinforced concrete pipe is backed by County Materials’ reputation for quality, service, and dependability.
Before the project along Avenue H in Fort Madison began, the construction team had concerns about the volume of reinforced concrete pipe and other products that needed to be delivered. County Materials committed to delivering two truckloads each week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, for approximately five months. That added up to 5,360 LF of pipe, as well as manholes, sewer intakes and more.
County Materials effectively met that commitment to ensure the project’s success.
