Relining a Tailings Dam Stormwater Channel with Limited Access

By Concrete Canvas – In August 2016, a Concrete Canvas® Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) was used to line a drainage channel at Glenridding Mine, Ullswater, Cumbria. The objective was to re-line an existing 200m long channel on top of a tailings dam to prevent damage from runoff during severe rain storms. In recent years there have been a number of extreme rain storms in the La... »

PODCAST: George Koerner on Exposed Geomembrane Performance

George Koerner, Director of the Geosynthetic Institute, had the honor this year of delivering the first Koerner Lecture—a series named in honor of his father Dr. Robert Koerner, who is internationally recognized as one of the godfathers of geosynthetics and who continues his work as Director Emeritus at GSI. Last year, I had the pleasure to see both Koerners at an ASCE’s GeoChicago conference and ... »
