From Pond Liners
Effluent Ponds are subject to stringent environmental restraints due to the risk of leaks or seepage which could contaminate the surrounding environment. Effluent pond liners are an effective barrier against the possibility of such leaks and/or seepage and generally answer the concerns of most local authorities when addressing risk with effluent. Fabtech is experienced in lining a vast number of effluent ponds Australia wide, from rural enterprise through to larger water and waste board managed entities.
Effluent is managed in differing ways, depending upon the needs of communities, with the re-use of “grey water” now a major factor in considering the watering needs of agricultural based communities. Barrier curtains are also used extensively in larger effluent ponds to maintain flow and maximize the efficiency of effluent management and/or discharge.
Generally, the preferred effluent pond liner is 1.0mm to 1.5mm High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)due to its high chemical resistance. Given the high levels of Hydrogen Sulphide and other gases present in the atmosphere as well as metals and other potentially toxic elements related to the collection and discharge of effluent, it is imperative that lining systems answer the concerns of environmental engineers and the like.
Fabtech’s ISO9001:2000 accredited Qaulity System ensures that all aspects of effluent containment are addressed to ensure that lining systems for effluent ponds are task-specific and answer the needs of environment, municipality and community.
