WATER IMPOUNDING APPLICATIONS
Waterblok provides a cost effective, quick and easy to install solution to water impounding, whether for potable water storage dams, irrigation dams, fish ponds, water reservoirs, water tanks, irrigation and other canals, artificial lakes, golf course ponds and hazards or any other type of water retaining and/or conducting structure. What is more, in most cases there are no need for concrete or cement, all that is needed is a 150 g/m2 non-woven needle punched polyester geotextile lining and WATERBLOK. All the work can be done by unskilled labor as no special skills are required in the application. In fact, a single laborer can cover an area of 200 m2 or more per day. What is more, WATERBLOK is non-toxic and no toxicity or tainting is imparted to the water which makes this system ideal for the impounding and storage of potable water and breeding of aquatic life.
This product is ideal for livelihood programs especially as no skilled labor and no special tools or equipment are needed. Local labor under the supervision of a trained applicator can do the installation. Simply stir the contents of the Waterblok container and apply it with soft brooms or brushes on the geotextile following jointing and trenching procedures. The tools are simply cleaned in or soaked overnight in water, ready for the next day’s use.
