Precast Detention Tank

Crest Precast, Inc. furnished 630 feet of precast concrete box section, for a large storm water system at Old Dominion Trucking terminal in Windsor, WI (Dane County)

Dotlich Contractors Inc. of Lebanon, IN installed 423 feet of 8 feet x 6 feet and 228 feet of 6 feet x 3 feet boxes using tie bolts and mastic to provide a water tight structure. Crest Precast, Inc. also furnished 19 precast structures consisting of inlets and manholes. The large manholes contained galvanized restrictor plates for the slow release of rain water.

The contractor, John Dotlich stated “the precast was of the highest quality” his company “has ever installed". We, at Crest Precast, Inc., take great pride that our box culvert design fit perfectly to save labor, and time, during installation. Thanks to our Crest team for such a fine project!
