Dallas eastside water treatment plant, Dallas, Texas
In 1996, consulting engineers under con-tract to the City of Dallas contacted Soil Stabilization Products Company Inc. (SSPCo) to discuss solutions for chronic problems caused by more than a dozen sliding failures per year on the outer slopes of a water treatment facility's lagoon. The facility, administered by Dallas Water Utilities, consisted of a series of water retention lagoons enclosed within a perimeter levee. The lagoons were constructed with flexible membrane containment liners. The tops of the levees were capped with a paved access road.
