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.
