Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Project, Phase 5
Phase 5 of the Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Project involved both remediation activities and infrastructure development and construction. Multiple facilities were constructed, including a 10,000-square-foot administration and 22,000-square foot operations building. Major work included the construction of approximately 26 miles of roads and berms, laser land leveling and grading and the installation of over 40 miles of 12-inch diameter subsurface perforated drain pipe and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) conveyance pipe. In addition, seven control valve facilities, multiple supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) facilities and five pump stations with cathodic protection systems were constructed.
