Geosynthetics play a critical role in today’s agriculture industry. Stringent environmental regulations dictate control of wastewater and runoff, as well as odor control. DGI provides geosynthetic liners for all agricultural applications, including:
- Animal Waste Lagoons
- Animal Waste Odor Control Covers
- Water Conveyance
- Water Containment
Project Analysis — Nitrogen Plant Expansion
In a massive expansion effort at a major nitrogen production facility DGI was contracted to install an engineered multi-layered geomembrane liner system in an additional 2 acre chemical pond. The complex design involved HDPE booted underwater equalization pipes between ponds and an underwater concrete vault system which was encapsulated on the bottom and 3 sides with HDPE geomembrane. This was then attached to the primary liner. DGI first installed a secondary containment membrane consisting of LLDPE liner with a leak detection sump and over that a layer of geocomposite to facilitate the movement of liquids into the leak detection system. These layers were then covered with the primary HDPE liner. DGI provided in house QA/QC technicians to work in cooperation with 3rd party QA/QC technicians and engineers from one of the leading engineering firms in North America to ensure the highest quality installation available while maintaining an extremely tight project timeline.
