Irrigation Lagoon Extension, Windlesham
“After making the decision to increase the size of our reservoir I contacted Butek Landline. They very quickly attended the site and discussed the plan and required groundworks. Once the in house team had the site ready, they again returned quickly and measured the area. I had the quotation the next day.
Scheduling the work was easy and the whole project was painless from start to finish. All members of the team were professional and helpful throughout the project.
A big thank you and well done to all at Butek Landline.”

Impermeable linings to new irrigation lagoon extension.
Crocus Limited approached Butek Landline wanting to increase the size of their existing water storage reservoir measuring 50.0m x 80.0m by a further 1,466m². Our inspection showed the existing 1.50mm HDPE material, originally installed in 2011 by some of the same Butek Landline technicians that would be working on this project, to still be in exceptional condition 9 years on.
Our initial site inspection and walkthrough revealed evidence of a high water table in one corner and the client undertook the necessary remedial works in this area to alleviate any future issues.
Material of choice once again was our Landflex PE150HD 1.50mm HDPE impermeable geomembrane, which has been tried and tested for more than 30 years and proven time and again to be robust, 100% inert, UV resistant and an incredibly economical solution for these types of project applications. Its ability to be welded on site and tailored to the excavation allows for speedy and efficient installation.
Due to the sand base and steepness of the batter we also supplied our Landflex G3000CBR protective geotextile underlay to both stabilise and prevent the threat of any “washout” to the sand binding layer on the steep batter prior to lining taking place.
The entire project was successfully concluded within the specified time frame.
