Degraded municipal pond requiring excavation and relining to minimize water loss and seepage. The open pond suffered significant water loss through evaporation, however the most damaging loss was through below ground seepage due to poor preparation of the base substrate.
A simple and traditional method of waterproofing was used. The pond was drained, excavations were undertaken, and Mr Waterproofing laid and installed a durable PVC liner. Water flow was then restored and the pond was instantly operational.
This simple method of preventing water loss enabled the pond to sustain normal water level with minimal costs. The water savings have equated to thousands of litres.
