Sharing Knowledge

The Minnesota Onsite Wastewater Association (MOWA) represents those individuals and companies in Minnesota whose business is involved in designing, constructing or providing maintenance and repair service for onsite sewage treatment systems, commonly known as septic systems. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) currently estimates that there are 491,000+ individual sewage treatment systems (SSTS) in Minnesota.

Founded in 1975, MOWA has over 400 members and is a non-profit business association whose primary objective is the betterment of public health through sound principles and procedures.

On Friday July 20, 2012, Minnesota Onsite Wastewater Association and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency held the 2012 Summer Soil Seminar hosted by Septic Check in Milaca, Minnesota.

This seminar offered two tracks for attendees : Soils Training and System Installation. Each track offered the opportunity for SSTS professionals to gain “hands-on” experience while earning continuing education credits and networking with other professionals.

Building Connections

Developed in 1966 in Switzerland, the BEBO Concrete Arch System is a precast concrete version of the arches used in Roman aqueducts built two thousand years ago which are still standing today. The project featured below is of a Twin Leaf BEBOBridge designed as a waterway structure for the Little Piasa Creek in Madison County, Illinois. This precast structure was produced and delivered from our production facility in Portage, Wisconsin.

Benefits of the BEBO Arch System:

  • Buried Bridge Structure – Reduces maintenance costs and lowers life cycle costs as there are no bridge deck or joints at the deck/roadway interface.
  • Modular Bridge System – Rapid installation results in reduced overall project costs, delays and detours.
  • Designed “Site Specific” – Meets your site needs in full compliance with AASHTO and AREMA design standards for highway and railway use.
  • Full Scale Load Tested – Verified engineering design methodology.
  • Easy Site-Adaptability – Flexible layout options to fit within the right-of-way – curve the structure with a stream or adjust for vertical and horizontal clearance requirements.
  • Manufactured in controlled environment with standardized components – Manufacturing is fast and efficient allowing us to offer a high quality yet cost-effective bridge option.

Wieser Concrete is proud to be a working partner with Contech Engineered Solutions of West Chester, Ohio. Wieser Concrete produces precast bridge and stormwater structures engineered and designed by Contech for area projects.
