Ductile Iron Sewer Piping (4” to 36”), Ductile Iron Drainage Piping, Site Water and Under Slab Concrete Encasement.
R&K was part of the team that constructed a 3MG modular ground storage tank to aide one of its industrial customers control on-site stormwater flow.
R&K cleared a 2-acre site, performed mass grading, excavated/treated contaminated soils, placed crushed stone for an aggregate footing, for the 230’ X 310’ tank to be constructed on, and then assembled the tank. An existing sewer line was rerouted around the new structure, along with necessary stormwater piping.
Once the tank was assembled, the R&K team lined the inside of the tanks with geotextile liner and then monitored the tank while it was tested and put into use.
R&K was contracted by Mississippi Lime Company in Ste. Genevieve, MO to expand their surface waste dump operation.

BASF Corporation is the largest chemical producer worldwide. The project consisted of routing the new water header below and above ground around the perimeter of the 170 plus acre site. This header will service their plant operations for the foreseeable future. Being the general contractor of the project, R&K was also responsible for additional phases of the project, including concrete support structures, stainless steel pipe transitions, culvert installations, and more. R&K teamed with ISCO Industries and their certified fusion technicians to complete the pipe install. Additionally, with the help of local general contractors, the project was completed safely and under budget.
