Geomembranes Aid in the Success of Lagoon Wastewater Treatment Systems

Posted by Felon Wilson on Jan 18, 2023 8:22:48 AM

In October 2022, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced $2 million in research grant funding as part of their Lagoon Wastewater Treatment Plan. The grants are one component of the EPA’s Lagoon Wastewater Treatment Action Plan, a broad initiative to assist small, rural, and tribal communities with the utilization of lagoon wastewater systems.

Five Geomembrane Installation Errors to Avoid at All Costs

Posted by Felon Wilson on Sep 29, 2022 11:01:32 AM

Nothing is indestructible, and that includes a geomembrane. While they are designed as a barrier against liquid, there are a variety of mechanical activities that will prevent a geomembrane from functioning as intended. Plus, these activities will also adversely affect the longevity of the geomembrane as well.

Permanent Secondary Containment vs. Portable Spill Berms

Posted by Felon Wilson on Aug 25, 2022 9:57:03 AM

One way to classify secondary containment of stored industrial liquids is either permanent or portable. Both routinely use the same type of geomembrane as the primary containment layer. In this blog, we will compare the two applications and look at the principal ways geomembrane use is the same and how it differs in permanent vs. portable secondary containment.

Dynamic Geomembrane Applications – What to consider

Posted by Felon Wilson on Aug 11, 2022 9:33:51 AM

Some see geomembranes as static fluid barriers, which means they are not subject to movement nor are they expected to carry any load. This includes load induced by the geomembrane’s weight itself and any weight imparted onto the geomembrane by redundant protective layers. However, there are common situations where movement of the geomembrane is inherent to some degree in the application.

In this post, we will take a look at these applications.
