ISCO Industries Earns PPI Project of the Year Award

Louisville, Kentucky (June  20,  2014) - The Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI) honored ISCO Industries' Wichita Falls Water Reuse Pipeline project with the 2014 PPI Project of the Year Award in the Municipal & Industrial Division. This is the second consecutive year ISCO has received this award.

"It is always great to be recognized as a leader in the HDPE industry supplying innovative and efficient total piping solutions," said ISCO President Vince Tyra. "ISCO's breadth of resources, equipment and technical expertise allow us to be responsive in time-sensitive situations without sacrificing quality and value."

Wichita Falls-based Bowles Construction, the contractor for the water reuse project, hired ISCO to provide a turn-key solution for the pipeline using high-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE).

ISCO completed the emergency water reuse pipeline in under four months while the city faced Stage Four drought conditions. The pipeline takes purified water, created from the 7 to 10 million gallons of treated wastewater that is normally released into the Wichita River every day, and after extensive filtration and treatment, supplies it to the public for use.

"This was an emergency solution, and the rate at which ISCO delivered the HDPE pipe and fused the pipeline together, while maintaining quality, surpassed my expectations," said Kerry Maroney, a civil engineer with Biggs & Mathews, Inc. and a consulting engineer for the city.

Award winners were recognized for exceptional service and significant achievements involving the use of plastic pipe. PPI is the major trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry.
