Title: The Concrete Lining of Detroit Water Tunnels of Detroit, Michigan
Author(s): L.G. Lenhardt
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 152-177
Abstract:This paper is to present the design and construction of the concrete lining of the land tunnels now under construction for the Department of Water Supply, of the City of Detroit. These tunnels when completed will be about 11 miles in length, cost about $5,700,000, and involve the use of about 200,000 yds. of concrete. The purpose of these tunnels is to convey raw water from the shore shaft to water plants some distance removed. The entire water project when completed will cost about $30,000,000 exclusive of the distribution system and will provide a system independent of the present plant and of about 50 per cent greater capacity.
