June 7, 2013
Willmar, Minnesota – June 7, 2013: Prinsco was recently awarded, “Project of the Year” by The Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), a major trade association representing all segments of the plastics piping industry.
Prinsco captured the title in the Corrugated Plastic Pipe Division for their Hillcrest Knoll Park Project done for the City of St. Paul, Minnesota. The project used more than 2,500 feet of 60-inch diameter Prinsco corrugated HDPE pipe to construct a retention system capable of storing 85,000 cubic feet of water. The system was installed underground at the Hillcrest Knoll Park, a public green space in the center of a residential area, in order to mitigate flooding issues with the park and bordering residences.
Prinsco was proud to work alongside WSB & Associates, Inc., Eureka Construction and Minnesota Pipe & Equipment on the project.
The Hillcrest Knoll Park’s retention system was highly customized with help from the Prinsco Engineering team. Carl Douglass, Prinsco’s Director of Engineering, says, “This project is a perfect example of how our high performance HDPE pipe can help solve difficult water management challenges. The structural integrity of Prinsco pipe coupled with the versatility of custom-fabricated structural fittings allowed Prinsco to optimize the system for the unique project requirements resulting in time and cost savings for the project.”
Prinsco’s high performance underground retention and detention systems help manage large volumes of water in residential and commercial areas where stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces can become a problem.
Prinsco has been a pioneer in the water management industry since 1975, and their premium HDPE products are widely known for having a gold stripe. Prinsco offers engineered water management solutions for the civil construction, commercial, highway, recreational turf, storm water quality and agricultural markets.
Prinsco was founded in Prinsburg, Minnesota, and has expanded to include a total of nine manufacturing facilities in Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, California, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.
