This will be a standard that lists all of the available methods for leak location on exposed geomembranes. The methods currently available for exposed geomembranes, which will be covered in this new standard, are the water puddle method, the water lance method, the spark testing method, and the arc testing method.
Rather than continuing to create new standards as more methods are developed, all of the bare geomembrane methods will be housed in this one standard, which can be updated as new methods are developed. This will make it far easier for designers and owners to specify the correct standard, while allowing for leak location practitioners to choose the method within that standard that is best suited to the application. This avoids requiring the designer or owner to have specialty knowledge of all of the available bare geomembrane leak survey methods.
