Dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated flexible geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

Factory fabrication reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, allows modular construction and provides consistent seam and liner quality.

FGI Creates Operation and Maintenance Guideline for Geosynthetic Lined Water Reservoirs

This guideline recommends regular inspections and maintenance for geosynthetic-lined reservoirs.  A well-defined, site-specific inspection and repair program ensures long-term effectiveness of lined reservoirs.  Floating covers, similarly, benefit from an inspection program. Documented inspections enable operators to detect and address various signs of potential leakage – while minor and repairable. Without this well-defined operation, inspection, and maintenance program and its necessary documentation, many, if not most, geomembranes will develop signs that show a potential for leakage of the stored water and ultimate failure.
