Timewell’s tile bridge protects drainage investments

May 15, 2015 – With thousands of miles of energy pipelines proposed or under construction in the Corn Belt, having a long-term, reliable way to repair tile damaged during pipeline construction is critical.
The tile bridge, a patent product from Timewell Drainage Products, offers a solution to this challenge.
The tile bridge is designed to keep tile repairs on grade. During a proving session last summer, the tile bridge was installed with “access points” to allow for grade testing. MECO Engineering Company, Inc. reported that in the six months since the initial installation, the elevation of the pipe flow line moved less than 0.05 inches.
The tile bridge has been approved for use in the Illinois Department of Agriculture Pipeline Construction Standards and Policies and has also been accepted by the Natural Resource Conservation service.
