City of Los Angeles / LAWA Argo Drain Sub-Basin Facility
Project Value: $37 Million
Project Dates: July 2018 - October 2020
PMCS Group President, Walid Azar, managed the construction of underground diversion facilities to capture storm water from LAWA Airside Operations Area and LA County storm drains, conveying and pumping the water through two tunnels using the jack and bore method. Water is collected from the Argo flood channel located inside LAX and from various LA County storm conveyance facilities. The stormwater is captured and conveyed in tunnels to a deep underground pump station that lifts the water up to an 8-million-gallon underground tank with an open bottom to allow for infiltration and recharge of groundwater aquifer. Mr. Azar oversaw the project and provided change management oversight, schedule oversight, review of payment requests, review of RFIs / Submittals, and assistance on resolving technical issues.
