Landline Limited completes irrigation reservoir for Woburn Golf and Country Club
Landline Limited, one of the UK’s leading specialist water containment geomembrane specialist, has completed the lining of Woburn Golf and Country Club.
Whitnell Plant constructed a 22,000m² reservoir to provide irrigation to the Golf and Country Club and the client needed the complete area to be fully lined with a hardwearing and watertight membrane.
The finished reservoir has a 30million gallon capacity, which meant it was extremely important that the materials used were the best possible option for the job, as such a large surface area required a robust and durable membrane that would be able to contain such a large volume of water.
Landline suggested its Landflex VR300 geotextile material together with a Landflex LLDPE membrane, offering a complete containment solution. The geotextile provides a puncture-resistant layer, which gives ultimate protection.
The fully welded membrane was then installed on top of the geotextile, secured to the anchor trench and around the outlet pipe to give a completely secure seal. All weld seams were air pressure tested and the entire installation was Quality Assured.
Landline also installed almost 40 tyre ladders around the walls of the reservoir, for health and safety reasons, using a single line of tyres tied together from the anchor trench to the base of the slope.
Mike Pomfret, Technical Sales Manager at Landline Limited said: “We have previously worked for Woburn Golf and Country Club, lining the water feature lakes on the Marquis golf course, so we were pleased to be invited to line the reservoir.
“In very challenging Winter weather conditions we completed the job on time and within budget, which resulted in a fully functional irrigation reservoir which is now starting to fill with water and can be used to irrigate the three golf courses.”
