Dam Liners & Fish Ponds

Dam Liners & Fish Ponds


Dam liners, also known as geomembranes, are impermeable barriers used to prevent water leakage in dams and reservoirs. They are designed to provide a reliable and durable lining system that ensures the containment of water and prevents seepage into the surrounding soil or rock.

Here are some key points about dam liners:

  1. Function: Dam liners serve as a protective layer to prevent water loss from the reservoir and to minimize the risk of structural damage to the dam. They create a watertight barrier that prevents water from seeping through the dam structure and into the surrounding ground.

  2. Materials: Dam liners are typically made from synthetic materials that are impermeable to water. The most common materials used include high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). These materials offer excellent resistance to water, chemicals, and UV radiation.

It’s important to note that the design and specifications of dam liners may vary depending on the specific project requirements, site conditions, and regulatory standards. Consulting with civil engineering and geotechnical professionals is recommended to determine the most suitable dam liner system for a particular application.

It's important to consider factors such as the type of liner material, site conditions, and engineering requirements when selecting and installing dam liners. Professional expertise and proper maintenance are crucial to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dam liners in water containment applications.
