Role of EPDM Liners in Water Management Schemes

The Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) has commented on the need for a drought and flooding strategy to be put in place including the construction of new reservoirs. Without a strategy the ICE said that the UK will continue to swing from flooding to drought. They went on to suggest measures such as water containment via new reservoir construction, sustainable urban drainage systems and rainwater harvesting, which will all help to manage water better. 

Currently water used in irrigation and agriculture is sourced in almost equal proportions from ground and surface water supplies. Ground water is pumped out from wells, boreholes and springs. Surface water is supplied via natural ponds, artificial dams, reservoirs and lakes. Synthetic rubber membranes serve an important function in water containment of reservoirs, ponds and lakes to prevent the lose of water through seepage. EPDM rubber liner rolled out ready to be cut to size

There are many different types of materials used in water containment including EPDM rubber liner membranes, which has proved to be ideal for many reservoir and lake liner applications. An advantage of EPDM is that it can be prefabricated to many different lengths and widths as required. 

EPDM liner membranes are used in a wide range of applications including the lining of irrigation canals, water reservoirs, lakes, ponds and agricultural waste reservoirs. Its success is based on the following features and technical attributes:

  • resistant to attacks by roots, fungi, bacteria and rodents,

  • resistant to chemicals

  • elasticity remains unchanged over decades and retains its flexibility at temperatures from - 40 to 120 degrees Celsius

  • easy to install and made to last decades.

EPDM synthetic rubber liners are chemically stable and contain no toxic additives. No chemicals are emitted and no damage is done to the environment.

EPDM liners offer a flexible and durable solution to a variety of agricultural and industrial applications: irrigation reservoirs and canals, artificial lakes, waste water reservoirs, water storage tanks and agricultural pits.
