Water conservancy projects refer to construction activities to regulate, control, and use water resources. In water conservancy projects, geomembranes play a vital role.
Geomembrane is an anti-penetration material made of polymer materials with excellent anti-permeability properties and mechanical strength.
First of all, geomembranes can prevent water waste. In water conservancy projects, such as reservoirs, dams, rivers, channels, and other buildings, geomembranes as anti-seepage layers can prevent groundwater or river water from entering the surrounding environment through leakage. This will not only reduce the consumption of groundwater resources but also avoid losses caused by massive leaks.
Secondly, geomembranes can improve irrigation efficiency. Agricultural irrigation is one of the key links necessary to ensure the stable operation of food production and farmland ecosystems. Yet, large amounts of irrigation water are wasted under traditional irrigation methods due to leakage. Using a geomembrane to cover the irrigation area can reduce leakage during the irrigation process, transport more water to the roots of crops, and improve irrigation efficiency.
Besides, geomembranes can prevent soil erosion. Much mud and waste will be generated in water conservancy projects while constructing structures such as rivers and dams. If these slurries and wastes are discharged into the surrounding environment, it will not only cause soil quality to deteriorate but may also cause water pollution problems. Using a geomembrane for covering can prevent mud and waste from penetrating groundwater or rivers and protect the ecological balance of the surrounding environment.
Finally, geomembranes can also increase the life of water conservancy facilities. Due to its excellent impermeability and mechanical strength, using geomembrane in water conservancy projects can extend the service life of buildings. It can prevent structural damage due to leakage and withstand a specific load pressure range.
As seen from the above, geomembranes are essential in water conservancy projects. It can not only reduce the consumption of groundwater resources, improve irrigation efficiency, prevent soil erosion, and increase the life of facilities, but also protect the ecological balance of the surrounding environment. So, need to to apply geomembrane in water conservancy projects. We should further strengthen the research and promotion of geomembrane technology to play its role better in water conservancy projects.
