Spring Floods in the Midwest 2019

The spring of 2019 in the Midwest has been a crazy one for millions of people.  Record flooding is now threatening the safety of more than a million private water wells. The National Ground Water Association estimates that people living in more than 300 counties across 10 states are going to have their groundwater threatened from bacterial and industrial contamination carried by flood waters.  This very well could turn into a national emergency.  

This flooding very well may spark an upturn in the demand for water well casing and the construction for damaged infrastructure like bridges and overpasses.  

Alpha Pipe is able to help in the rebuild process for any damages.   We also sell water well casing to many private drillers that then provide the wells for many of these people in need.  

Everyone at Alpha Pipe hopes that things can stay under control as much as possible, but we are here to help provide solutions for many problems if that time comes.

Culvert Grade Steel Pipe

Many companies feel culvert grade pipe is useless and only scrap steel.  Here at Alpha Pipe we love taking culvert pipe into our inventory.  We have many different uses for it and have sold hundreds of truck loads over the years of all different sizes of culvert grade pipe. 

Alpha Pipe defines culvert grade pipe as having one or all of these characteristics: slight bows, dings, or dents along with pitting in the steel.  The most sought after culvert sizes are 24", 30", and 36" pipe.  We have also sold culvert in sizes as small as 6 5/8" and as large as 48" pipe.  Depending on what the job is for is what size the customer uses or buys for their job site. 

There are many different job uses for culvert pipe.  Some of the most common would be for drainage, cattle troughs, creek crossings, and flume pipe on construction sites for heavy machinery to run over so they do not get stuck in the mud. 

If your company has any steel pipe that has already been used for a job and would consider useless, maybe we both have a chance to make a little money off of it.  Give us a call and we will take a hard look at paying you for what you might of thought was worthless.  Alpha Pipe is always looking to recycle steel to help save companies money.
