Concrete Canvas specified to reline a channel at a Mine Water Treatment Works in Silkstone, Barnsley

14 February 2018

In October 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) was used to line a channel, at the Silkstone Mine Water Treatment Works (MWTW) in Silkstone, Barnsley.

The channel had previously been lined with HDPE which had been damaged in recent flood events leading to the possibility of untreated water from the mine adit entering the nearby stream prior to the reed bed treatment system required for active filtration of the water. CC was proposed to reline the channel to provide a robust, impermeable lining solution that could be fixed to various surfaces throughout the channel.

The works were carried out by JN Bentley for the Coal Authority, with Consultation services provided by JBA Bentley.
