Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Project
For over 13 years, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has managed the Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Project. The objective of the multi-phased project is to minimize dust levels affecting air quality in the areas surrounding the 108-square-mile lakebed. Over the 9-phase project, LADWP has developed the site’s infrastructure and implemented several dust mitigation techniques, including: gravel cover, managed vegetation, shallow flooding and land tillage.
Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range 200 miles east of Los Angeles, the lake’s remote and ecologically diverse environment presents unique challenges. KDG Construction Consulting has served as the Construction Manager during 8 of the 9 phases of the project and offers a broad understanding of the project’s complexities.
