Case Study: Enhancing Water Storage Efficiency with Ocean Non Wovens’ HDPE Liners in Champara, Bihar 

June 24, 2024 | Case Studies

Water storage is a critical component in agricultural and industrial operations, particularly in regions where water scarcity is a perennial challenge. Ocean Non Wovens, a leader in the geosynthetics industry, recently completed a significant project in Champara, Bihar, which exemplifies our commitment to providing top-tier solutions for water management. This case study delves into the deployment of our Ocean HDPE Liner-1500 micron in a water storage pond, illustrating the effectiveness and benefits of our product. 

Project Overview 

Location: Champara, Bihar 

Champara, located in the state of Bihar, faces considerable challenges with water availability, especially during the dry seasons. To combat this, a robust water storage solution was required to support local agriculture and community needs. 

Product Used: Ocean HDPE Liner-1500 micron 

For this project, we supplied our Ocean HDPE Liner-1500 micron, known for its durability, flexibility, and resistance to environmental stressors. A total of 10,800 square meters of this liner was utilized to line the water storage pond. 

The Importance of HDPE Liners in Water Storage Ponds 

High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) liners are essential in the construction of water storage ponds due to their numerous advantages. These liners provide a reliable barrier against water seepage, ensuring maximum water retention and efficient utilization of stored water. The key benefits of HDPE liners include: 

  • Durability: HDPE liners are resistant to punctures, chemicals, and UV radiation, making them ideal for long-term water storage solutions. 
  • Flexibility: They can easily conform to the contours of the pond, providing a seamless and secure lining. 
  • Environmental Safety: HDPE liners are environmentally friendly and safe for storing potable water. 
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Despite their high performance, HDPE liners are cost-effective, providing a durable solution with minimal maintenance requirements. 

Project Execution 

Site Preparation 

The first step in the project involved thorough site preparation. The pond area was cleared, and the ground was leveled to create a smooth surface for liner installation. Proper site preparation is crucial to prevent liner damage and ensure its longevity. 

Liner Installation 

The installation of the Ocean HDPE Liner-1500 micron was carried out meticulously to avoid any wrinkles or folds that could compromise its integrity. The installation process included: 

  1. Liner Placement: The liner was carefully unrolled and positioned to cover the entire pond area. 
  1. Seaming: Sections of the liner were welded together using advanced thermal fusion techniques, creating strong, leak-proof seams. 
  1. Anchoring: The liner edges were anchored securely to prevent displacement due to wind or water movement. 

Quality Assurance 

Throughout the installation process, rigorous quality checks were conducted to ensure the liner was free from defects and properly installed. This included testing the seams for strength and checking the liner for any punctures or tears. 

Benefits Realized 

Water Retention 

The Ocean HDPE Liner-1500 micron provided excellent water retention, significantly reducing water loss due to seepage. This ensured that the pond maintained a consistent water level, critical for both agricultural irrigation and community water needs. 

Cost Savings 

The durability and low maintenance requirements of the HDPE liner translated to substantial cost savings over time. The community in Champara now benefits from a reliable water storage solution with minimal ongoing expenses. 

Environmental Impact 

Using HDPE liners also has positive environmental implications. By preventing water seepage, the liners help in conserving water, a vital resource in regions like Champara. Additionally, the material’s resistance to chemicals ensures that stored water remains uncontaminated and safe for use.
