Water Reservoirs Protecting the Most Important Resource for Our Future Water reservoirs with steep embankments are reliably and permanently sealed with plasticiser-free, textured geomembranes from AGRU. Thanks to the geomembrane’s excellent UV resistance and resistance to root penetration and rodents, they possess a very long service life. AGRU geomembranes have been used in snowmaking ponds in alpine terrain to help ensure water supply for artificial ski slopes, an essential factor in drawing people for skiing holidays. Hydraulic Engineering with MicroSpike AGRU MicroSpike has a high grip with more than 20,000 studs/m², which makes it the ideal solution for steep slopes when combined with protection or drainage geomembranes. A stud-free welding area makes it easier to install. 7
