Zachary School Board
Watson Ricks Engineering Group LLC
The Zachary School Board was in search of a drainage pipe product to help drain the football field at Zachary High School in Louisiana.
Reinforced concrete pipe was originally considered for the project but DuroMaxx steel reinforced polyethylene pipe was a suggested alternative. DuroMaxx offers the strength of steel reinforcing ribs and the durability of High-Density Polyethylene Resin HDPE. This, coupled with watertight (WT) joint performance tested up to 15 psi and long available lay lengths, set DuroMaxx apart from conventional pipe products. It is also light weight, ensuring easy handling and a quick installation.
Because of these advantages, Watson Ricks Engineering Group LLC and the School Board decided to use approximately 1600 LF of DuroMaxx polythylene pipe in 42, 48, 54 and 60-in. diameters for the football field. A-2000 PVC pipe was also used in smaller diameters.
The installation went smoothly and the School Board was happy with the drainage solution for the football field.
