Today, the Northeast Mississippi Regional Water Supply District is the largest supplier of treated surface water in the region. The district draws its water from the Tombigbee River basin, which drains northeastern Mississippi and parts of western Alabama, a total area of over 13,700 square miles. A major feature in the basin is the Tennessee-Tombigbee (“Tenn-Tom”) Waterway, which joins the Tennessee River and parts of the original Tombigbee River through dams and man-made canals, to serve as a navigation route between the Gulf of Mexico and the central United States.
The structural engineers at Cook Coggin Engineers, a civil engineering company based in Tupelo (MS), asked B&B Concrete, the ready-mix concrete supplier, for an optimal waterproofing solution for the concrete walls of the new weir. After reviewing the cost benefits, and the on-site technical support available from Penetron, PENETRON ADMIX SB was specified to treat all concrete.
