Prompt pipe puts New Mexico town’s water supply back in action

November 2, 2016


A failed irrigation canal had cut-off the main water supply to the desert town of Bloomfield, New Mexico, including several farms and industries. Time was of the essence in getting the breach fixed. 

To get crews started, Big R Bridge shuffled shipments to deliver the 54' of the required Corrugated Steel Pipe (CSP) we had on hand the next day. We had the remaining portions milled and delivered within the week. If it had been any later, the farmers’ crops and livestock would have been endangered.

We’re the largest supplier of Corrugated Steel Pipe in the Rocky Mountain Region 
Proven performers for over 45 years, our CSP systems are flexible, cost-efficient solutions for stormwater, highway, railway, mining and forestry construction challenges.


Available in a variety of sizes, corrugation profiles, thicknesses and coatings to suit virtually any application, CSP is the material of choice for today’s infrastructure projects. Strong and flexible, it won’t crack under impact loads or vibrations.
