T-Lock Gasketed Sanitary RCP for Wastewater Reclamation

Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation Authority

The Des Moines Wastewater Reclamation Authority, servicing several communities in the Des Moines area, is engaged in an ongoing interceptor sewer project. Cretex has produced the majority of the gasketed piping for the project, accounting for more than 100,000 feet of sanitary sewer system, which is 36”-144” in diameter.

Over the course of the multi-year project, Cretex has learned a great deal about sanitary systems, and has used that to hone its TLOCK pipe, bends and manhole tees. Cretex has facilitated the implementation of the project with on-site inspection and contractor training, providing a comprehensive answer for the Authority.

Noted for having the best products by a considerable margin, Cretex has been successful in cutting infiltration requirements in half from the original specifications. The project has passed all infiltration tests, a testament to the quality work of Cretex manufacturing plants.
