Methane and other gases can cause severe damage to liners underneath lagoons, landfills, and other infrastructure, but where does it come from? As organic matter such as dead plants and animals decays, bacteria release a mixture of carbon dioxide and methane. These byproducts of the decomposition process are unavoidable.
When this gas is trapped beneath a liner, it can build up and cause significant damage. Hydraway has solved that problem with our Hydravent methane venting system. The superiority of our Hydraway 2000 flat drain system can be applied for this purpose to protect your investment and increase the lifespan of your lagoon.
Hydravent offers superior compressive strength over other venting solutions. With the entire weight of the water in a lagoon or trash in a landfill pressing down, it is possible for other systems to become less effective, opening the door to potential damage. For this reason, Hydravent is also used under the LA tunnel system beneath the city.
