Temcor Domes Cover Potable Water Reservoir

Water reservoirs are a key component of the water infrastructure, and reservoir covers improve potable water infrastructure.

A common problem facing cities across the country -- and around the world -- is the deterioration of water and wastewater infrastructure.

Water reservoirs are a key component of the water infrastructure. And fresh, potable water faces many issues. Security. Evaporation. Air pollution. Birds and flying insects ... everything that can impact a body of water.

Laguna Beach County Water District has upgraded their water reservoir cover with a maintenance-free, long-lasting (minimum 50-year design life), secure, and environmentally friendly fixed cover to protect its valuable potable water.

Not only can the aluminum cover system be recycled after its service life, but now more that 50% of the aluminum used in these cover systems is made of recycled aluminum. In addition to the design, fabrication and erection of the cover, the contract also included the design and construction of the new concrete footings and shear walls required to support the cover. Temcor subcontracted this work out to a local engineering company and a construction company. The reservoir as a whole was updated for current CBC seismic requirements during the design and construction phase.

Temcor, located in Gardena, CA, has installed three large water reservoir cover replacements in southern California, including a 162' x 262' column-supported Temcor Aluminum Roof. This was built over an existing potable water reservoir at the Laguna Beach County Water District, a nonprofit, local government agency that provides retail water service to 25,000 people in an 8.5 square-mile area.

Temcor is one of the world's largest aluminum dome and cover system builder. Temcor has been building aluminum domes and other structures for more than 40 years and has more than 8,000 installations throughout the world.
