Maybe someone has mentioned this in the past, but I'm real curious what the triangle plastic lined water reservoir is used for?

No, I have heard no authoritative statement.

But lined pools are generally used for isolating liquid pollutants from the environment. White will help destroy most biohazards, but it's probably to be used to concentrate water-soluble excess from one of their solvent baths in the factory.

Now I found Randy's new parking spot while on the job. Towards the end of video.

Lining just shows that they don’t want it to percolate into the soil. It’s probably a retention basin for site rain runoff that hasn’t been treated. In California almost all runoff now gets treated before it leaves the site. Every large project now has some pre treatment and either retention for use as landscape water or it gets percolated back into the ground from drywells or bio retention basins or LID type planters.
Due to the ongoing construction they may not have installed a treatment system yet so they have to retain it. It could also be that due to the disturbance they have made to the land, in a large rain event, they need to buffer the flow of water off the site so it collects in that reservoir first.
