ASTM WK46511

    New Guide for Geomembrane Design and Installation at Hydraulic Fracture Development Sites

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.26.02 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Design and installation of geomembrane liners at well pads, impoundments, and other features that require containment of materials that could adversely impact the environment.

    Leakage from hydraulic fracture well pads has been reported in the literature, and installation of a proper containment system at well pads would mitigate the potential for these impacts. The standard would be used by designers, material manufacturers, installers, and general contractors involved in the development of hydraulic fracture installations. It is expected that the standard will be of value to regulators, inspectors, designers, installers, and developers.
