Reinforcing Sludge caps with high-strength woven geotextiles has become a very successful method of capping lagoons throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean region. Time and money can be saved over using older, traditional methods such as solidification Hurricane Storm Protection. GeoTextile use as reinforced sludge lagoon caps is on the rise in Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Bermuda, Martinique, Turks and Caicos, Virgin Islands, Caymen Islands and more.
Where possible, the geotextile fabric can be sewn in place or used in an accordion-folded stack adjacent to the pond. Once seamed, the panel can then be easily installed by floating or dragging it across the lagoon utilizing ordinary construction equipment. The geotextile panel is then anchored around the pond or lagoon allowing back filling operations to start.To learn more how using GeoTextile fabrics in your lagoon area can help, contact SDMI dba Caribbean GeoTextiles
