These ditch enclosures are part of the US Bureau of Reclamations desalinization project for the Colorado River. They function at pressures up to 30 psi.

A-2000 PVC pipe offered a strong, tight, and cost effective solution for this vital irrigation system. Its superior hydraulic properties (Mannings “n” – 0.009) resulted in an increased capacity by 44% over the concrete and HDPE alternatives.

In selecting a system based on hydraulic efficiency, A-2000 PVC pipe far exceeds the performance limitations of corrugated HDPE and RCP drainage pipe.
