Zero leakage in service is always the goal under ideal conditions. And, often times, this can be nearly achieved when electrical leak location surveys are performed by first-class operators. However, there are still too many instances of failures of geomembrane-lined containment facilities, often as a consequence of improper design, and generally resulting in significant leakage. This webinar will present mechanisms of failure, including actual examples, and will recommend design measures to avoid each specific failure mechanism. The webinar will also emphasize that the use of geomembranes in containment facilities is essential for environmental protection by preventing migration of containments into the ground, as well as by reducing water waste. 1.0 PDH
