Kiewit Pacific Co. constructed the world's largest prestressed concrete tanks. The $86 million Hollywood Hills Quality Improvement Project consisted of two 30-million-gallon underground water storage tanks and a 1-mi.-long tunnel bypass system to provide safe drinking water for nearly 500,000 customers in the Hollywood area.
The $11 million project involved installing 7,000 linear feet of pipeline, a two-million-gallon concrete reservoir, a booster pump station, consisting of five vertical turbine pumps, water treatment facilities, a new arsenic treatment system and a well development.
