Summary: The water district had a continuous drainage issue from offsite irrigation runoff collecting around the existing reservoirs. In an effort to protect the above ground reservoirs from water damage, Draincore2 was chosen to intercept the excess water and transport it to a 12” SDR perforated pipe away from the reservoir structures. The reservoir holds a water capacity of 2.5 million gallons-so moving the existing structures was not an option. An impermeable geomembrane fabric lined the bottom of the Draincore2 with a 6 oz. non-woven geotextile fabric was placed above. Class II base materials were applied above the system.
