The geomembrane product mix ranges from 12mil – 40mil with several proprietary technologies including the RhinoMat product line. Owens Corning has recently begun constructing a world class geosynthetics research facility, as part of the current Science & Technology Center, located in Granville, OH.

Reviving the Palos Verdes Reservoir

California is home to one of the most active water resource infrastructure sectors. Geosynthetics can play an enormous role with the creation and rehabilitation of these water resources.

The 76-year-old Palos Verdes Reservoir in Los Angeles County provides an exemplary case (Photo A). The 360-million-gallon cell is currently undergoing an update that will greatly extend its service life. In this special three-part series for Geosynthetics magazine, the project team will highlight the work as it happens.

In Part 1, the project is described, with the prep, manufacturing, and fabrication stages highlighted. In Part 2, installation, testing, and quality assurance on-site will be covered. Finally, Part 3 will follow the facility as it goes into operation.
