In May 2019, Concrete Canvas® was installed as a channel lining solution at the Lynemouth mine water treatment scheme site in Northumberland, UK.
The existing concrete channel required extension to increase its capacity in order for the channel to cope with the increasing volumes of discharge expected as a result of the construction of new lagoons. The extension involved the preparation and lining of slopes either side of the existing channel.
Geotextile was initially considered for the works, but CC was ultimately chosen due to its superior puncture resistance, durability and UV resistance.
The channel lining installation was carried out over several weeks.
