damliner ensures water is harvested and stored for later use mainly for irrigation, domestic and livestock use.  Water harvesting using dam liners ensures large volumes of water from boreholes and wells, rivers and runoffs are harvested stored for supply to the community. Dam liners are made to alleviate the problem of leakages in porous soils.

Dam liner Types

Dam liners types are  categorized as HDPE, PVC and LLDPE Dam liners. HDPE Dam liners are the most stable with excellent UV and weather resistance. They are the best dam liners for long term projects. PVC Dam liners are soft, light and easy to deliver and install. PVC liners are however not stable hence not advisable for long term projects. LLDPE Dam liners are soft and easy to install. Unfortunately, they have less tensile strength which makes them susceptible to deformations and tears.

Grekkon dam liners are black in colour and are available in fixed widths of 8m and lengths of up to 250m. However, during dam liner installation, we do customized welding (or machine joining) to fit your reservoir size. Grekkon only supplies HDPE dam lining in Kenya.

Note that dam lining material obtained from virgin materials will last for more than 10 years while those from recycled materials can last for less than 5 years.

Qualities of a Good Dam lining Material

Storage by use of dam or pond liners require the very best lining materials so as to last long and prevent leakages.

  • Materials for dam lining must be UV treated to increase longevity. UV treatment ensures they last for decades of between 10-30 years depending on the thickness and gauge.
  • They should be made from virgin materials, not recycled.
  • Dam liners or pond liners require materials of high resistance to abrasion or puncturing.
  • Good dam liners should withstand harsh weather conditions.
  • Should be stable.
  • Quality dam lining material should be pocket friendly to the buyer.

Before purchasing dam liners, always consider: type of material, thickness, size of the dam and features. Also get the right dimensions of the dam prior to purchasing. Always purchase brand new dam liners and not second hand dam liners. Second hand dam liners will always wear out within a year of purchase.

Dam liner Installation Process in Kenya

Excavation.

This is the first step and usually takes the longest time. Excavation can be done manually where jembes and hoes are used or with a machine. Most common machines for dam excavation are backhoe loaders, bull dozers and caterpillars. During excavation, the side walls are inclined at an angle to prevent collapse of the dam. The cost of digging a dam in Kenya is Kes. 7,000 to Kes. 15,000 per hour for an excavator depending on soil & distance. Other additional variable costs are mobilization, fuel & operator wages.

Smoothening of the dam.

This is done to remove any sharp objects that may damage the dam liner. You may be forced to pour in water on the floor and sides to soften it.

Trench making

Trenches are dug round the dam where the dam liner will be installed. The size of the trench will depend on the size of the dam and the dam liner thickness. The most popular trench sizes are 1ft deep by 1ft wide and 1.5ft deep by 1.5ft wide.

Installation

During dam liner installation and after measuring the dam liner required, the liner is inserted in the reservoir, to take the shape of the reservoir. The dam lining material must have an allowance for overlap. This allowance is inserted in the trench and covered with soil so as to have a smooth finish. Several casual labourers are needed to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. Note that you have to install an inlet and an over flow. The inlet can be a pipe from a river, borehole or from the roof gutter section. Dams that trap run off water must have a silt trap with several chambers to trap stones, mud and other debris.
