Workers guide the Rainstore3 stacks into the chamber.
Rainstore3 stacks sit on site, ready to be loaded into the excavated chamber.
The same piece of equipment used to excavate the chamber is used to load the Rainstore3 stacks saving on equipment costs.
Stacks of Rainstore3 are aligned in the chamber to the final configuration.
Workers begin to affix the geogrid to top of the Rainstore3.
A slight overlap of the geogrid to its neighbor prevent gaps.
