Various Retention Ponds Liner And Their Maintenance

Retention ponds are widely accepted being quite benefiting and easy design. But like every ease, there come some problems that are needed to be tackled, once you learn how to perform a timely retention ponds liner maintenance to overcome many issues and enjoy the advantages offered by the for a long time.

Issues include pollution caused by water animals, a source of mosquito yield, due to over-heating of the pond at times there can be an exponential growth of plants causing insufficient availability of oxygen, and a threat to water quality.

Geomembrane Protection

PVC liners – Used for the geomembrane protection works well when it comes to the areas having the possibility of a frequent freeze, long hauls, and thaw. PVC liners are effective in contaminating hazards and community waste.

Polyethylene Liners

These are normally made of HDPE and LLDPE, provide the firm protection and intangible strength to the surface. The stiffness Polyethylene offers resists effectively against chemicals and puncture factors. These liners have further tendency to be fragmented into up to 1 acre sized panels, whenever needed. This all in all results in an improved maintenance of retention pond liners.

Install Cellular Confinement

A wise choice must be made during the installation, it can decrease the size of retention pond areas and at the same time reduces repair and maintenance costs up to 50%. The larger the panel expansion it costs higher eventually, while a good installation can reduce up to 68% of the size and hence costs are deducted. A high-quality cellular confinement resists damage while shipping and is quite easy to install.


The focus functionality of these charts is separation and filtration, which is a crucial phase while the maintenance of retention ponds.

The most common nonwoven is a needle-punched product

Most typically used and reliable one is non-woven needle-punched geotextiles. Barbed needles are mechanically entangled with fibers this way staple fibers are bonded. This product is usually designed and available in two; white or orange. The former ones while are an indication of warning barrier pointing towards contaminated soil areas.

Spun-bounding is another technique to obtain fully manufactured geotextiles. Filaments are extruded during this process and are spun over a belt that collects them which are the bonded by sending through heat rolls.
This whole process ultimately gives a stiffer, stronger product with negligible pore size and enhanced protection. The color they are typically found in is gray.…
