Service Description

In a geomembrane-lined containment facility, several problems may be pre-empted by good maintenance. The most important aspect is compliance. Many regulatory agencies require regular monitoring of ponds and containment to determine compliance with environmental standards. Layfield can provide contract maintenance services as part of your environmental monitoring plan. Geomembranes are often relied upon to provide the majority of environmental protection at a facility; however they usually receive little maintenance. Layfield’s technicians can locate defects in the geomembrane and restore your environmental protection. Several problems can occur in a containment area. The most common damage to liners is mechanical damage. Mechanical damage can occur due to the movement of ice, acts of vandalism, or day-to-day operations within the facility. Mechanical damage is most common in exposed pond liners; however, backfilled geomembranes can be damaged as well.
