Geomembrane Protects Oklahoma Wastewater Treatment Plant

A case study out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, showcases how XR-5 geomembranes from Seaman Corporation/XR Geomembranes lower construction and operating costs

Geomembrane Protects Oklahoma Wastewater Treatment Plant

Problem: The Haikey Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma, receives wastewater through 36-, 30- and 24-inch force mains. The Broken Arrow Municipal Authority needed a geomembrane for a flow equalization basin designed to reduce sanitary sewer overflows.

Solution: XR-5 geomembranes from Seaman Corporation/XR Geomembranes were chosen for durability and low thermal expansion and contraction. The membranes are compatible with harsh liquids and offer high UV resistance and tensile strength. They can be prefabricated with fewer field seams than rigid alternatives, shortening installation time and cost and improving membrane integrity. 

Result: These properties along with toughness from the base fabric enable the authority to leave the liner exposed so that there are lower construction and operating costs and no slope maintenance. 800-927-8578; www.xrgeomembranes.com
