The Bergsche-Maas project was a replacement initiative, exchanging the original water basins that were constructed in the seventies. The demand for drinking water had increased, and will continue to rise, so a new water inlet system, containing 3, 84” pipelines and a new pump station, needed to be constructed. The pipes needed to go into the river, which is an environmentally sensitive area. Two major problems became evident: the weights needed to be large and heavy enough to sink it, and the weights needed to be installed on the pipe while in the river. PipeSak had custom engineered and built 3,200 saddle bag weights for the pipe that fit all the required specifications. PipeSak’s custom engineered geotextile weights allowed the project to be completed on time and on budget to accommodate the high demand for drinking water.
