Neat seismic retrofit

I collect these articles. Seismic retrofit is some of the more interesting work in the earthquake universe. In this case, they are strengthening a ratty old reservoir. As we know, San Francisco has to make an effort to maintain its water supply, when the earthquake hits.

That is neat. I like the pictures. I wonder how Ontario's reservoirs would hold up?

Pretty good. The ones I've seen have solid foundations. But these are only small storage bins for treated water, our main reservoir is the lake!
