Project Lifecycle Day 1: A kind of calm excitement frames Mayfair Park in Lakewood, California, as workers install the first of many precast concrete structures making up a massive Jensen Detention Reservoir for the Lakewood Stormwater and Runoff Capture Project.
“We had a very successful first day due to the proper subgrade preparation by the contractor, Sukut Construction, and their attention to the details involved in the delivery of Jensen Precast segments for precise timing of installation,” says Jay DeVries, Jensen Precast Outside Sales Representative. “We’re moving right along really well.”
Manufactured by the Jensen Precast branch in Fontana, California, the reservoir will enable the Lakewood community to realize cleaner stormwater outcomes for decades. The structure is designed and engineered by Jensen Water Resources in Sparks, Nevada. This project is the largest detention installation to date by the team. Coming in around 4.5 million gallons, the precast concrete installation is expected to be completed by February.
