Western Environmental Liner was created in 2002 by their parent company Western Ag Enterprises Inc. to help satisfy the needs of several of their customers who were asking for geomembrane liners. Western Ag Enterprises had previously focused on the production and service of Tarps & Covers and felt the need to put more focus into geomembrane specialization by creating a separate division. Headquartered in Tolleson, Arizona, with locations in Kansas and New York as well, Western Environmental Liner specializes in the production of custom fabricated geomembrane linings for multiple applications, including but not limited to; very large ponds & lakes liners of all shapes and sizes, liners for canals, temporary construction ponds, waste pits, mining applications, golf course ponds, recreational facilities, oil field fuels & waste containment as well as frack pad, pit, & tank liners.

Indian Brook Trout Farm in Jackson, Michigan, is located on an aquifer than runs from Lake Erie to Lake Michigan. This has proven to be the perfect location for cultivating high-quality, farm-raised fish. The farm currently harvests 10,000 pounds of fish per month, with a goal of 4.5 million per month in two years. The current harvest supplies 400 grocery store chains and restaurants throughout Michigan. The inventory of fish is housed in both outdoor and indoor round tanks that range from 9-30 feet in diameter, with PVC liners in each tank. When Owen Ballow, President and Owner of the Indian Brook Trout Farm saw that the liners purchased for the trout farm had deteriorated prematurely, he knew a better solution needed to be found. Ballow turned to Plastatech Engineering, Ltd, a geomembrane manufacturer in Saginaw, Michigan. Plastatech manufactured custom tank liners for Indian Brook using their FG (Fish Grade) Geomembrane in 30 mil. This fabricated geomembrane provided the needed tensile strength and flexibility for both the outdoor ponds and tanks. Plastatech was also able to manufacture custom pipe and drain flashings that are compression fitted and watertight. In lakes where open water penetrated fish are raised, the waste that collects on the bottom of the lakes decays and causes disease and other issues. Using Plastatech’s liners in the outdoor ponds and indoor tanks allows the waste not only to be contained, gathered, and sold as fertilizer, but keeps diseases from getting into the water, and also prevents chemicals from being absorbed into the soil.
