Solving this year's Drought Fallout

We protect your water. We protect the future.

A historic challenge calls for innovative solutions. Today's ongoing drought is the worst in recent history and threatens growers, vineyards, dairy farmers, livestock producers, food processors, and residents. The drought is a challenge that requires proven technologies to protect our limited water resources by controlling seepage, permeation, evaporation and providing effective water storage and water preservation solutions. The ongoing issues have shut down many farms in the Central Valley and across California and Washington with the loss of over 17,000 agricultural jobs. The loss of farmland due to the drought conditions will affect food prices nationwide. The volume of water lost to evaporation and seepage can potentially be devastating.

Based in San Diego, California, Layfield USA designs, custom fabricates, and constructs/installs evaporation and algae control covers for ponds, lagoons, and tanks that eliminate evaporation and control algae. These products are designed to protect our precious water resources and the agricultural industry from the drought by eliminating water loss. An evaporation control cover stops evaporation by preventing the dry ambient air from contacting the water in the pond. Evaporation control covers also prevent the concentration of pond liquids. This helps control salt or mineral accumulation in irrigation water and protects water used to water livestock. An added benefit is the control or elimination of algae growth, which is a concern from a regulatory standpoint.

              Evaporation Control Covers and Water Storage Tanks

Basin liners (geomembranes) are very effective in controlling seepage, permeation and help prevent the loss of precious water from ponds and irrigation canals. Layfield is one of the top geomembrane liner manufacturers and fabricators in North America. A properly selected geomembrane for a canal or reservoir liner can significantly reduce water loss, providing valuable water savings. Geomembrane liners can also be used to line ponds in Aquaculture. The key to success for aquaculture applications is selecting a suitable geomembrane that will not harm the fish, such as our Enviro Liner 6000 geomembranes.

Water storage is essential to reduce the risks of rainfed agriculture. Food processors also need to store water for washing, rinsing, cleaning, and many other processes. Layfield can build steel tanks and deploy water storage tubes to handle both emergency and long-term water storage needs.

Layfield is committed to protecting the environment and developing green solutions to preserve water and assist growers, vineyards, dairy farmers, livestock producers, and food processors through the drought with state-of-the-art water resource solutions. We're here to support all vital industries in a time of unprecedented need. Protect your water and your future with Layfield's technology and expertise.
