Tanks, Dams and Reservoirs

Water retaining structures often represent the ultimate civil engineering challenge.


The critical need to reliably hold back very large volumes of water can be the difference between life and death for communities throughout the world. Tailings dams and settlement tanks likewise perform the critical task of preventing catastrophic environmental contamination.


Dams and other liquid containment structures utilising Reinforced Earth® techniques have been in service for many years in many countries. The Reinforced Earth® system can be combined with waterproofing geomembranes to provide robust, durable and impermeable structures that perform exceptionally well under seismic loads. Quickly and conveniently designed and delivered to remote locations, Reinforced Earth® structures are cost efficient and offer ease and predictability in construction and can be adapted to whatever topography or geometry the applications require.
