Press release from: Masterpak

Masterpak’s highly-trained professional team installed geomembrane lining at large irrigation lake in Qattara, Jbeil, Lebanon.

Masterpak’s highly-trained professional team installed geomembrane lining at irrigation lake in Qattara, Jbeil, Lebanon. The polyethylene (PE) film manufacturer’s team successfully completed the large project in less than one week, working under unfavorable weather conditions.

The artificial lake, belonging to Saint Artemius (a.k.a. Mar Challita) monastery, has a large capacity to hold water. Geomembrane lining, impermeable high puncture resistant sheets of polymeric material, will preserve and conserve rain water in the lake. Agricultural lands surrounding the water reservoir will benefit from access to irrigation water throughout the year even during dry seasons.

About Qattara Irrigation Lake Geomembrane Installation Project

Extending 63m wide and approximately 85m long, Qattara irrigation lake in Jbeil district of Mount Lebanon has a maximum depth of 9m. Masterpak installation project covered:

• Approximately 6,000m2 of surface preparation work
• More than 12,000m2 of geosynthetic materials
• 250gr/m2 geotextile used
• 1.5mm AGRU High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane used

In addition to water reservoir lining, geomembranes have many other applications, such as solid waste containment, dam or tunnel lining, stadium or basement water proofing, etc.

Geomembranes are used for hydraulic engineering (dams, irrigation pond, canals and firefighting basins), landfill engineering (landfill sealing: base, slope and capping), environmental applications (retention basins & secondary containment), and civil engineering (waterproof construction).

Furthermore, Masterpak also manufactures various other PE films for the building and construction sector, such as concrete curing film, multi-purpose protection film, under slab vapor barrier, aboveground barricade warning, and underground warning tapes and signs.
