Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) On-Call Services, Los Angeles, California


From 2009 to September of 2015, we provided on-call geotechnical services to LADWP. As needed, GeoDesign (with our joint venture partner, GENTERRA) assisted the City in planning, design, analysis, dam/reservoir safety, laboratory testing, field investigations, and construction support for a range of water infrastructure developments.

Specific projects included:

  • Harbor Refineries Machado Lake Pipeline Extension
  • Sylmar and San Fernando Groundwater Basins
  • River Supply Conduit Lower Reach Unit 4
  • Emergency Action Plan for Encino Dam and Reservoir


  • Through our wealth of staff experience and our partnership with GENTERRA, we were able to assist the City on a diverse array of projects.
  • We provided LADWP with a seamless extension of their in-house team to contribute to their ambitious project goals.
