WHAT WE DO
Reservoirs for water storage are often lined to avoid losses through porous soil, however, even in some clay-based soils considerable seepage can occur. There are benefits to lining concrete reservoirs too – especially where potable water supplies need to be protected. Teneo’s extensive experience and understanding of the geosynthetic industry allows us to confidently recommend, supply and install various geomembrane products on the market. HDPE, LDPE and PP are common material choices for lining water storage reservoirs.
Agriculture & Aquaculture
Choosing the site for a farm dam is more flexible if it is to be lined, as the location then doesn’t require good holding clays. Depending on the material, these agricultural liners can be factory-fabricated into large sheets and then safely folded and rolled for transport. This reduces the costs associated with sending a full installation team long distance.
In aquaculture industries, fish and prawn farmers often choose to line their ponds because their soil is porous, and water is a commodity. Disease control/hygiene can also be easier with lined ponds and bank erosion and turbidity can be controlled more easily meaning cleaner water
