Shading Cover Solutions

It is one of the most promising techniques to reduce water loss by evaporation in reservoirs, because of its low cost and savings achieved. It involves the installation of a mesh made of porous lightweight materials with high shading ability, while the rate of penetration and drainage of rainwater remains high. The resulting structure is a flexible covering that allows evaporation reductions of up to 85% and a durability of several years. The only limitation of these systems is the size of the lagoon to be covered, which conditions the design and requires to study carefully the effects of wind and perimeter anchoring efforts.
