California is home to one of the most active water resource infrastructure sectors, and geosynthetics can play an enormous role with the creation and rehabilitation of these water resources.
The Palos Verdes Reservoir has been part of Los Angeles County’s extensive water service network since the late 1930s. The avocado-shaped facility, with a depth of 75 feet, provides 360 million gallons of water storage. To keep it operating efficiently and to extend its service life greatly, a plan was approved to make significant changes and upgrades. Raven CLI was awarded this large-scale project to fabricate and install geocomposite and a geomembrane liner and cover.
