PROJECT DESCRIPTION

FLSI was awarded to supply and install 25,000,000 SF of 60 mil (extra wide) HDPE for the Intrepid Potash Solar Evaporation Ponds in Carlsbad, NM. Battling high winds and the elements, this project only took as little as one year to complete. To date, this is FLSI’s largest project ever to be completed. Some fun math we did, if you were to line a one lane highway from our fabrication facility in Avondale, AZ, we’d be able to line all the way into the Pacific Ocean and then another 14 miles!
