Drainage and Venting of Geosynthetic Containment Systems

The recent increase in discussion on finer points to geomembrane installations (e.g., managing geomembrane wrinkling) has us revisiting stories on other significant points regarding geomembrane system performance. Here, we look at an article authored by Andrew Plowman (Varicore) about the importance of proper drainage and venting design and how it impacts the integrity of geosynthetic containment ... »
