Another story of a flooding near-miss
July 22, 2008
The wastewater lagoon
at Tama nearly got inundated by flooding last month, though quick work by sandbaggers
kept the situation from becoming a disaster. High-water emergencies like this are why many communities have moved to the use of geomembrane lagoon liners
, which can prevent cross-contamination and soil ruptures better than clay liners and compacted soil liners.
