Manure Pond And Lagoon Covers


Manure storage is becoming more and more popular for a variety of reasons. For starters, it helps to control odors. It can also minimize rainwater accumulation, and capture biogas. IEC Covers uses this material for covering holding tanks, large dairy, and hog ponds. In addition to the benefits listed above, manure storage can also help with compliance issues related to storm water runoff.

When considering a cover for manure storage, polyethylene is an excellent option. It is impervious to biogas and most wastewater constituents, providing a long lifespan for the end-user. IEC Covers strives to provide customers with a cover that never needs to be removed – with good solids separation, you can expect up to 20 years of life.  IEC Covers’ goal is that you never have to remove the cover until it needs to be replaced.

Floating Manure Pond and Reservoir Covers

IEC’s Covers are customized to fit the exact measurements of your reservoir, pond, lagoon, or tank. Our gas collection cover has a patented design that includes a series of lateral floats that provide pathways for gas to flow beneath the floating cover, to the perimeter collection pipe, and onto a single collection point.

Traditional floating covers that inflate expose the geomembrane cover to vibration and fatigue from wind, which significantly reduces the life span of the cover. IEC’s floating covers use lateral floats instead, which keeps the entire cover floating on the waters’ surface, eliminating cover inflation and exposure to wind damage.

Additionally, ballast weights are placed on top of the floating cover channel rainwater and snowmelt to sumps, which remove all rainwater from the surface of the floating cover.
IEC’s pond, reservoir, and manure lagoon covers and manure storage covers have a number of benefits, including:
  • Designed by engineers with over 25 years of continuous cover design experience
  • Keeping the cover on the water surface avoiding damage from wind
  • Accommodating fluctuation in water level
  • Installation without interruption in-basin use
  • Installation on tanks, reservoirs or ponds
  • Eliminating rainwater pooling problems
  • Eliminating inflating the cover and gas ballooning
  • Providing access to in-basin equipment

Modular Floating Covers for Manure Ponds, Manure Reservoirs and Manure Lagoons

IEC’s patented Modular Cover System for manure ponds, manure tanks, manure reservoirs, and manure lagoons is comprised of a series of individual casings, which are connected together to form a complete, floating cover system. Each individual casing consists of a panel of closed-cell insulation encapsulated between 2 sheets of durable geomembrane. The result is a unique floating cover system that provides insulation values ranging from R-2 to R-30 and is engineered and manufactured to specific dimensions/basin requirements.

The Modular Cover System offers the following advantages over conventional covers systems. These covers are:
  • Maintenance-free
  • Able to be installed on tanks or lagoons
  • Adept to varying water levels
  • Made up of removable, individual casings
  • Installed without site interruption
