Irrigation Ditch/Trench Lining


Canal Lining vs. Ditch Lining

The same Skidmark Geomembrane lining used in canals is also used in ditches. Most irrigation ditches have a lined width of eight feet or less.This allows for the liner to be installed longitudinally ( the length of the ditch ) instead of across the width of the canal.

The photos below are an example of a ditch lining project. In this example the ditch was actually a narrow concrete trough or flume. The liner width is six feet.

First the liner was unrolled into the concrete flume.

   

Then the liner was formed or molded over the sides of the concrete. Watch a short video of how this was accomplished by clicking on the photo below.

                              

Metal clips were secured along the top of the liner to complete the project.
