In collaboration with the engineers at Gannett Fleming, Hallaton Environmental Linings installed bituminous geomembrane liner at the Bel Air Water Impoundment owned by Maryland American Water. During the 2019 Excellence in Engineering Awards, The American Council of Engineering Companies Maryland presented Gannett Fleming with an Outstanding Project Award for this innovative dam project.
Hallaton Environmental Linings has been awarded with IAGI’s (International Association of Geosynthetic Installers) Award of Excellence at Geosynthetics Conference 2019 in Houston, TX, for the Druid Hill Reservoir Temporary Lined Cofferdam project located in Baltimore, Maryland.
Award-Winning Project: Druid Hill Reservoir Temporary Lined Cofferdam
Hallaton performed the geosynthetics installation portion of a temporary stone cofferdam at the Druid Hill Reservoir. Hallaton’s crew installed an XR-3 Potable Water Grade Geomembrane on one side of a stone cofferdam inside of a 55-acre active drinking water reservoir. The lined cofferdam was a critical component of an overall $164-million-dollar, 5-year project to upgrade the drinking water system which provides Baltimore area citizens with safe drinking water.

Hallaton is the proud recipient of the prestigious 2017 IAGI Innovative Project Award. Our work at the Pearce Creek Dredge Disposal Facility was showcased as being among the best in Geosynthetics Installation.
IAGI Awards Recognize the Best in Geosynthetics Installation
IAGI (International Association of Geosynthetic Installers) presented three Installation Awards at Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 in Orlando, FL. The awards recognize exceptional work by geosynthetic installers.
“The IAGI Installation Awards recognize those IAGI members who make significant contributions to the field of geosynthetics installation. So often the installer gets forgotten in the discussion of a project,” commented Laurie Honnigford, managing director of IAGI. “In reality a project is a set of plans on a piece of paper until the installer gets involved. The installer can make or break a project and we need to recognize those who improve and advance our industry.” Continue reading
