GEOMEMBRANES

Geomembranes to Line Surge Shafts
Surge shafts are underground water structures that are usually lined. The lining provides stability and watertightness to the excavation line, avoiding that excessive water infiltration undermines the stability of the slopes and of the structure itself.
