Over deze norm
1.1 This standard is a performance-based practice using the water lance system, a electrical method for detecting leaks in exposed geomembranes. For clarity, this document uses the term “leak” to mean holes, punctures, tears, knife cuts, seam defects, cracks and similar breaches in an installed geomembrane.
1.2 This standard can be used for geomembranes installed in basins, ponds, tanks, ore and waste pads, landfill cells, landfill caps, canals, and other containment facilities. It is applicable for geomembranes made of materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, chlorosulfonated polyethylene, bituminous geomembrane, and any other electricallyinsulating materials. This standard may not be applicable for locating geomembrane leaks where the proper preparations have not been made during the construction of the facility.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
