Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity of Self-Sealing Lining Materials for Desalination Evaporation Ponds

Sandia University Research Partnership

Evaporation ponds are used in the disposal of saline waste produced by desalination plants. An increase in concentration of saline wastewater by evaporation reduces the resistance of clay-based lining material commonly used in evaporation ponds and increases the risk of groundwater pollution. Self-sealing lining materials can add resistance to the lining system against advective flow through their capacity of reacting WITH THE SALINE WASTE...
