Case Study: Advanced Pond Lining with Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM in Bhopal, MP 

June 10, 2024 | Case Studies

In the ever-evolving field of geosynthetics, innovative solutions for water conservation and management have become paramount. One such groundbreaking project was recently completed by Ocean Non Wovens in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, where we supplied our high-performance Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM for an extensive pond lining project. This case study explores the project’s details, the products used, and the impact of our geotextiles on the success of the pond lining. 

The Challenge: Effective Water Management in Bhopal 

Bhopal, known for its numerous lakes, faces significant challenges in water conservation due to seasonal fluctuations and increasing demand for agricultural and industrial use. Traditional pond lining methods often suffer from leaks, seepage, and inefficiencies, leading to substantial water loss. The project aimed to create a reliable, durable pond lining system to address these issues, ensuring optimal water retention and sustainability. 

The Solution: Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM 

To meet the project’s stringent requirements, Ocean Non Wovens provided 4400 square meters of our Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM. This non-woven geotextile fabric is specifically designed for pond lining applications, offering a unique combination of strength, durability, and permeability. 

Key Features of Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM: 

  • High Tensile Strength: With superior tensile strength, our geotextile ensures structural stability and resistance to mechanical damage during installation and throughout its lifespan. 
  • Optimal Permeability: The fabric’s permeability allows for adequate water flow while preventing soil erosion and sediment buildup, maintaining the pond’s ecological balance. 
  • Chemical Resistance: The geotextile’s resistance to various chemicals and UV radiation ensures long-term performance even in harsh environmental conditions. 
  • Ease of Installation: Lightweight and flexible, Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM can be easily installed, reducing labor costs and installation time. 

Project Execution in Bhopal 

The project involved lining a large pond in Bhopal, requiring meticulous planning and execution to ensure the desired outcomes. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of the process: 

  1. Site Preparation: The pond bed was thoroughly cleaned, and any sharp objects were removed to prevent damage to the geotextile. 
  1. Geotextile Installation: The Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM was laid out systematically, ensuring overlap at the joints to prevent leakage. 
  1. Seaming and Anchoring: Seams were secured using thermal bonding, and the edges were anchored with concrete blocks to ensure stability. 
  1. Final Inspection and Testing: The lined pond underwent rigorous inspection and testing to ensure there were no leaks and that the geotextile was properly installed. 

Benefits Achieved 

The implementation of Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM for the pond lining in Bhopal resulted in significant benefits, highlighting the product’s effectiveness and the project’s success: 

  • Enhanced Water Retention: The geotextile significantly reduced water loss due to seepage, ensuring a consistent water supply for agricultural and other uses. 
  • Cost-Effectiveness: The durability and low maintenance requirements of the geotextile translate into long-term cost savings. 
  • Environmental Sustainability: By preventing soil erosion and maintaining water quality, the project supports environmental conservation efforts. 

Unique Insights: Beyond the Basics 

While many companies emphasize the basic features of geotextiles, several crucial aspects often go unnoticed: 

  • Longevity and Maintenance: The true test of a geotextile’s quality lies in its longevity and ease of maintenance. Ocean Geotextile 250 GSM offers exceptional durability, reducing the need for frequent replacements and repairs. 
  • Adaptability: The fabric’s adaptability to different soil types and environmental conditions makes it a versatile choice for various geotechnical applications. 
  • Community Impact: Projects like the pond lining in Bhopal have a profound impact on local communities by enhancing water availability and supporting sustainable agriculture.
