ID help: Everglades construction water pipe

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

nearby the east-west road being elevated so natural water can flow north-to-south under;

don't know what to call this item other than:

construction water release pipe (steel or aluminum???)

any advice from construction mavens appreciated !!!

note: this was weekend, no workers around, so it might involve 24/7 pump

keeping water away from new raised highway foundation...?

Not sure States side but here it is usually "outfall" or "pump out". Other than that "pipe" or "water drainage pipe"

 

Hope that helps with  tagging for British market.

Jeff, keep an eye out for those sneaky ‘gators. They have mean eyes, prehistoric creatures that they are. The U.S. monsters I don’t want to live in the states where they reside are:

Alligator

puma, cougar, mountain lion, whatever name you prefer

grizzly bear

Down the list is a pack of wolves.

Of course, all states have packs of domestic dogs (or even just one) that probably kill more people than all of the others put together. That’s probably universal over most of the world.

Jeff, even though the pipe doesn’t appear to be buried, I wonder if a searcher might call it a culvert.

It always seems to be the animals with big teeth that people worry about when in reality its those little critters that will put you in hospital or in a box. Malaria, tick fever, typhus and thats just 2 insects. Snakes, spiders and scorpions all add to the fun if you get paranoid about such things.:(

Alligator Alley safer than (Location: Kansas, United States) Tornado Alley, no contest.

🤪 True. But tornadoes don’t have sharp teeth to give you nightmares.

Try 'steel drainage pipe' on google images or
'corrugated metal culvert' on alamy...

i reckon definately not aluminium.
i can just see an alligator in that far pond but the weather looks too nice for tornados!

Hi Jeff,

I don't know what they'd call this in the States. But we would use the term 'overpumping' in the UK. So something like:

 

"Overpumping of riverwater (or groundwater?) through a ribbed metal outfall pipe as part of the temporary works to protect new foundations from undermining during the construction of xyz....."

How about:-

 

'temporary drainage relief pipe', or 'pumped drainage relief pipe'

Hey, Betty.   I'll take the cougars (we may have some in NC), the grizzlies (only black bears here), and you can have the tornadoes.  Deal?:D

Only if you take the alligators, too, Michael!

I have a basement to hop into if a tornado comes. It’ll take me about 10 seconds to get to safety. Where are you going for safety in 10 seconds if one of those animals charge you?

i guess your freshly stinky pants would make it turn tail and run! :lol::lol::D
