Project review

The Winscar reservoir is a major source of potable water for Yorskhire Water, a northern UK utility. The dam suffered seepage and other troubles.

Rehabilitation, which included installation of a new upstream geomembrane insulation layer, was desperately needed. Dam high is 53 m and upstream face surface covers approximately 25000 m2.
