Service Description

The Electrical Leak Location method is a very sensitive technique that accurately locates leaks (if they exist) in geomembrane liners in landfills or impoundments. This field-proven method has located many leaks not previously found using conventional methods. Layfield supplies Leak Location surveys across North America. Leak location surveys are effective for both exposed and backfilled geomembranes. The Electrical Leak Location method works on all polymeric geomembranes. The method is not effective on GCL’s or compacted clay liners that do not include a geomembrane. Once you detect leakage in a sump or a monitoring well localizing and repairing the leak can be a difficult proposition. The Electrical Leak Location method is the fastest and most accurate technique available to pin-point leakage. The Layfield service group can assist you in developing a repair, maintenance, or installation plan using the Electrical Leak Location method.
