Wastewater Liners


Wastewater treatment is done via a series of steps, during which huge volumes of liquids in different stages are slowed down via water tank baffles, or held sometimes for weeks. Some of these measures are deliberate for the purpose of holding the liquids sometimes for weeks at a time. The objective of the steps is to allow the solids to settle, sometimes without the aid of bacteria while also being exposed to circulating air known as aeration. Our wastewater liners can ensure that wastewater itself does not seep into the ground and enter the potable water supply. Getting rid of the solids that have settled (known as sludge) can be difficult to do. This is why you need wastewater liners you can depend on that is not only puncture proof but also abrasion and tear-resistant as well.

IEC Covers’ wastewater liners can assist in eliminating wastewater seepage, vital for the maintenance of the quality of drinking water. Wastewater sludge and raw sewage present in septic tanks, lagoons and sewer lines have the potential to leak and eventually overflow into potable drinking sources during the treatment phase. This increases the possibility of contaminants such as bacteria, nitrates including toxic materials of entering our drinking water supply. Our wastewater liners can effectively minimize or eliminate entirely this possibility.

What Causes Water Seepage?

When it comes to wastewater seepage, there are several known causes such as incorrectly lined lagoons. Leaks in the lagoon may cause wastewater to seep into the ground thereby posing a risk to contamination of precious drinking water supplies. The leaks are due to a number of reasons such as punctured liners, overflow, and use of inferior lining materials. IEC Covers’ wastewater liners are designed to minimize the possibility of encountering wastewater seepage. Other causes include reduced lagoon capacity due to the buildup of sludge and this increases the potential for wastewater to seep into the groundwater and streams largely because there is simply not enough space for it to be contained. An excess of wastewater contaminants is also another reason. During times when the amount of wastewater that is being treated is too high and there are larger concentrations of contaminants in the water resulting in seepage. Wastewater movement in the system slows down resulting in it remaining in one area longer and thereby giving it more opportunities to seep in the surrounding water.

IEC Covers’ Wastewater Liners Prevent Seepage

Our wastewater liners are very effective at preventing seepage during the treatment process. We have the ability to fabricate large sizes and install them quickly and efficiently on-site so as to reduce the possibility of wastewater seepage. Selecting the right wastewater liners can make a ton of difference in its effectiveness. Our wastewater liners are made from reinforced polyethylene and other similar materials that offer many advantages when it comes to stopping wastewater seepage in its tracks and these include:
  • Excellent puncture and tear resistant properties
  • Approved for use in potable water
  • Safe for plants and fish
  • Offers excellent ultraviolet light resistance
  • Excellent water loss prevention
  • Effective soil and erosion control
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
Our wastewater liners offer excellent chemical resistance. This feature is one of the most important aspects to consider when choosing a liner for your waste ponds, reservoirs, and sewage lagoons. Different wastewater treatments require the addition of reactive and corrosive chemicals in order to improve water quality as well as to break down pathogenic bacteria or nitrates. If your liner does not have the right materials, it will eventually fail due to the constant barrage of chemicals ever-present. The sewage in itself is a corrosive concoction that serves to shorten the operational lifespan of inferior-quality liners. This is most especially true in an agricultural or commercial setting. Our wastewater liner can withstand the barrage of chemicals it is exposed to and in effect prevent deterioration and eventual failure of the containment measure.

Reinforced Polyethylene

Our wastewater liners are made up of reinforced polyethylene which is perfect for lining sewage ponds. It blends multiple forms of polyethylene material in order to soup up performance. By adding a reinforced layer, the wear resistance is increased so it is not easily damaged during installation as well as prevents roots from doing harm that grow over time. The excellent chemical-resistant properties of our wastewater liners make it the ideal solution for your wastewater ponds, reservoirs, and lagoons. It has the ability to store high levels of chlorine and other chemicals used in wastewater treatment which gives you the ability to replace small above-ground tanks with in-ground storage containment systems.

High-Density Polyethylene

Our high-density polyethylene wastewater pond liners are very resistant to many chemicals and are known to be the most widely used geomembrane on the planet. It provides higher specific strength than other materials and can also withstand higher temperature levels as well. Its excellent chemical and ultraviolet light-resistant properties make it an extremely cost-effective choice for your wastewater ponds. HDPE wastewater liners feature the best chemical-resistant qualities because of their dense configuration. It is field welded using hot wedge welders and extrusion welders and is virtually stronger than the sheet itself. There is also no need to cover the liner because of its excellent UV resistance properties.

When it comes to wastewater ponds, the liners used should offer as much impermeability as possible in order to prevent seepage that spreads pathogens as well as water loss. Many wastewater ponds, reservoirs, and lagoons are usually established in areas where there is also a local water table present that serves as the drinking water source. While it is true that wastewater is naturally filtered as it begins to seep through layers and layers of soil and rock beneath the ground, it requires an expansive spread through the layers in order to become clean and drinkable once more. The presence of a high water table beneath a wastewater pond, reservoir, or lagoon may potentially let sewage in prior to it becoming filtered properly. IEC Covers’ wastewater liners can provide the best and most reliable means of preventing and controlling this kind of contamination.
