Geotechnical Design Lead
Dario Rosidi is a Senior Principal Geotechnical Engineer with Jacobs and the Geotechnical Lead for the DCA. He has led geotechnical and seismic investigation and design teams for numerous projects with similar aspects to those contemplated for the Delta Conveyance Project. Most notably, he was the Geotechnical and Seismic Lead for the initial WaterFix Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement and the Geotechnical Segment Lead for the California High Speed Train Project. Other representative projects include: the APM Container Terminal in Costa Rica which included dredging and filling a sea floor for construction of a new container terminal; the Caltrans State Route 710 Tunnel Technical Study to evaluate technical feasibility of a tunnel alternative; the Panama Canal Third Set of Lock where he reviewed and provided comments on project performance criteria, contractor design, and construction approaches; and the Waikato and Waitaki Dam System in New Zealand where he led the development of site-specific seismic ground motions and fault rupture to be used for seismic safety and strengthening evaluations of existing dams.
Dario has a wide range of experience with the facilities of the Delta Conveyance Project, including intakes, pumping plants, tunnels, embankments, deep below-grade structures, bridges, foundations, and ground improvement and the expertise to plan, evaluate, design and implement the results from geotechnical and hydrogeologic investigation programs and studies.
