Retention ponds are actually a positive feature of any neighborhood or urban area, but they’re not always popular.
Retention ponds were once only used in agriculture and industrial site development, but now they’re commonly found in neighborhoods, and even backyards, in areas with heavy rainfall.
New water features aren’t always designed as aquatic habitats, but they can still play an important role in protecting other existing ecosystems.
No one aquatic habitat is quite identical to another, whether you’re comparing them in the wild or in a zoo environment.
The easiest ponds and basins to line feature low sloping banks, flat bottoms, and relatively shallow designs.
Restoring existing aquatic habitats and bodies of water is preferred over trying to build new ones from scratch.
The majority of aquatic habitat projects undertaken in the real world are restorations designed to help improve and stabilize existing aquatic habitats.
Zoo and aquarium aquatic habitats are some of the most challenging to design.
Onsite remediation, for drilling wastewater and mud, is one of the most challenging aspects of oilfield design.
Flaring is one of the most controversial ,yet important, parts of operating an active oil or gas pumping operation.
Most reserve pits, built on the oilfield, are divided not by their specific use for processing but rather they length of time they’ll hold the same wastewater.
Most of the pits and ponds installed around an oilfield will be filled with liquids and sludges that are lightly to heavily flammable.
Drilling pads are the heart of the oilfield operation and they deserve plenty of attention to ensure they’re meeting all local and state regulations on environmental protection.
With so many lining materials commonly sold for pond use today, it’s easy to assume that the majority of them might work well for pits on the oilfield.
Oilfield pits of all types and sizes require proper lining to retain their wastewater loads.
Pits and ponds are used for storing various types of waste in almost every major industry.
The oilfield is technically just the deposit of oil itself and the land or water above it.
Frac pits may be designed with care and covered with liners warrantied to last decades, but they’re usually only used from six months to a few years at most.
Hydraulic fracturing sites often have half a dozen or more unique types of ponds and pits in order to manage the various risks around the property.
Selecting the right liner material is important for every pond, impoundment, and other water-holding area.
With millions of gallons of fresh water going into each hydraulic fracturing well, it’s no wonder that hundreds of thousands of gallons can come back out.
It’s well-known that produced water, in particular, can have negative effects on the water and soil surrounding the oil field.
The hydraulic fracturing work site is often full of various basins, pits, and ponds to hold fluids and other materials close to the active well pads.
If you’re used to fertilizing fields for bigger crop yields, you may have already heard of fertilizing ponds as well.
Building a private fishing lake may seem like a big project just for something to share with friends and family.
