Maintenance, management and construction of reservoirs

The construction, maintenance and management of farm reservoirs, drinking water reservoirs and any other water retaining reservoir must be completed by competent and qualified engineers and site staff. Errors in construction and maintenance can lead to devastating damage and the costs resulting from ruptures in reservoir walls can be astronomical.

Below we have put together some of the answers to the questions most frequently asked when we are in the initial stages of reservoir development.

Are you able to offer your reservoir construction and reservoir maintenance services across the UK?

All of our reservoir services are available to clients across the UK and Europe, on some occasions we may travel further offering consultancy and design services for reservoirs.

Do you offer a design and build service for reservoirs?

The majority of our reservoir projects include design aspects and then lead onto the construction stages of the reservoir. We support all our clients throughout the reservoir design, planning and construction stages.

Do you offer a lining service for reservoirs?

We are able to provide HDPE, EPDM, GCL and other products to line reservoirs should natural clay lining not be available. We have a team of staff who are able to lay, line and weld bespoke reservoir liner sizes and shapes onsite.

When lining a reservoir, how do you check for leaks in site welded joins?

All the joints in the reservoir liner are pressure tested to make sure there are no leaks upon lining the reservoir.
