  • Performance-Based Specification Of Electrical Leak Location Surveys For Geomembrane Liners

    ABSTRACT Electrical leak location surveys can be a crucial part of the final quality control of geomembrane liner installations. The method has been offered as a commercial service since 1985 and is the only practical test method that can find holes in the liner after protective soil cover is put on the liner. During the past fourteen years the test method has been used on a wide variety of ...

  • 332 Braithwaite Tanks Case Study

    Severe corrosion had caused substantial holes to develop on the Braithwaite Water Tanks. The roof was repaired utilising steel plates. The smaller holes were repaired using a combination of metal filler and GRP bandaging in conjunction with Acothane DW. A London hospital recently had a problem with two Braithwaite water tanks. Both tanks are located in a roof top plant room and had ...

  • A Lakeside Community Tackles a WWTF Upgrade

    Blodgett Landing, a community of about 145 homes on the shores of Lake Sunapee in Newbury, New Hampshire, operates a 50,000-gpd wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) that is unable to meet current groundwater discharge standards with the existing Imhoff tank and sand filters/rapid infiltration basins (RIBs). A pilot project was begun in 2001 to reduce nitrate loadings to the groundwater. Effluent ...

  • Zero Effluent by Application of Biological Treatment at High Temperature

    For the production of high quality corrugated medium and test liner it has been shown since 1995 at a new large size mill in Germany, that no or practically no effluent discharge is necessary when the process water is treated in an anaerobic/aerobic conventional treatment plant, which is followed by sand filtration. In this paper, three different projects are described which show, that the number ...

  • Impact of artificial monolayer application on stored water quality at the air–water interface

    Evaporation mitigation has the potential to significantly improve water use efficiency, with repeat applications of artificial monolayer formulations the most cost-effective strategy for large water storages. Field investigations of the impact of artificial monolayers on water quality have been limited by wind and wave turbulence, and beaching. Two suspended covers differing in permeability to ...
