Design of Flexible Membrane Covers and Linings
for Potable Water Reservoirs
February 15, 2015, 8 am – 3 pm
Timothy D. Stark, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Additional instructors include:
Bill Way, William J. Way, Consulting Engineer
Mike Neal & Shannon Goodrich, Layfield Group
Daren Laine, Leak Location Systems
Glen Knopp, Inland Tarp & Liner
Andrew Mills, Layfield Group
Dave McLaury, DemTech
This short course will utilize the M25 Guideline from the American Water Works Associate (AWWA) to expose engineers, regulators, owners, and contractors to the design, installation, specification, and operational requirements for flexible-membrane covers and linings for potable-water reservoirs and conveyances. Attendees will receive a copy of M25 and also be introduced to AWWA D130 which is the Standard for Flexible-Membrane-Lining and Floating Cover Materials for Potable Water Storage. This is important because states, e.g., California and Texas, are experiencing drought and water protection and storage is being encouraged. As a result, many entities and states are using geomembranes for a wide variety of potable water applications, such as water reservoirs and canals, decorative ponds and lakes, floating cover systems for treated water facilities, water treatment ponds, and protection of water resources from various environmental, community, and security risks. This has resulted in substantial innovation in design and construction of geomembranes for these water projects especially because of the large and often oddly shaped geometries of these facilities. This short course will allow instructors to present the latest advances in geomembrane design, specification, installation, testing, performance, and repair for potable water applications.
