The facility is a water reservoir built in the 1920s. Recently leaks and spalling of concrete have been observed. Composite Construction, LLC of Tucson, Arizona and its partner, Connecticut’s Underwater Construction Corporation provided a solution using its propriety carbon fiber reinforced polymer concrete.
This propriety system was used to line the reservoir to mitigate any leaks and to protect the reservoir from further deterioration. More than 105,000 square feet of carbon fiber was installed on the roof, ceiling, walls, floor, and columns.
