Rancho Grande Diversion Drainage Improvements
Rancho Grande Diversion Drainage Improvements - San Benito, Texas
A-2000 Provides Durability and 100+ Design Life

After Hurricane Harvey, Rancho Grande required a series of improvements, including a diversion drainage channel along the highway. As the best solution, Cameron County selected A-2000™ PVC because it offered a small diameter, hydraulically smooth pipe with joints rated for 15 psi, while also meeting the tight budgetary restrictions.  A-2000 PVC provides excellent durability, resists abrasion and corrosion, and is capable of lasting 100+ years. Its superior strength and joint tightness were ideal for this application.
