Leading US manufacturer of water-related infrastructure Northwest Pipe Company has been selected by Garney Construction to manufacture engineered steel water transmission pipe for the latest segment of the Red River Valley Water Supply Project in central and eastern North Dakota. Northwest Pipe Company is manufacturing over 7,500 tons of 72-inch-diameter engineered steel pipelines for the Contract 5B of his project. The pipe, which is being manufactured at the Saginaw, TX facility, will start being delivered to the job site this summer. In addition, the Company is also supplying PermalokÒ steel casing pipe for the intake on the Missouri River.The Garrison Diversion Conservancy District and Lake Agassiz Water Authority are co-sponsors of the RRVWSP, which will create a buried pipeline to carry water from the Missouri River near Washburn, ND, along Highway 200 to the Sheyenne River, above Lake Ashtabula. When complete, the RRVWSP will provide an emergency water supply to central and eastern North Dakota during times of water scarcity and drought. The water will also provide opportunities for industrial development, as a current lack of industrial water supply has driven industries out of North Dakota. Without the pipeline, the state estimates that a 10-year drought similar to the 1930s dust bowl would have a $32 billion economic impact, which would be devastating to the state's communities and industries.Founded in 1966, Northwest Pipe Company is a leading manufacturer for water-related infrastructure products. It manufactures high-quality precast and reinforced concrete products; water, wastewater, and stormwater equipment; steel casing pipe; bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe; and one of the largest offerings of pipeline system joints, fittings, and specialized components. Northwest Pipe Company provides solution-based products for a wide range of markets under the ParkUSA, Geneva Pipe and Precast, and Permalok lines.
