Pit Liners are most commonly known for containing some type of waste or by-product. They have also been used to contain water for energy industries such as oil, gas, and fracing (fracking). Some of the terms often used as well as pit liners is oil remediation pads, lagoon liners, oilfield pits, waste treatment ponds, drilling pad liners, & temporary storage pits.

- The needed longevity of the liner,
- if it will be buried or exposed to the ultra violet rays of the sun,
- and how rough the liner will be treated,
are the most important factors for a water containment pit liner.
Most likely Western Environmental Liner’s Aqua series of liners will be the best option for pit liners that will be primarily containing water. Pit liners where the containment of light chemical mixtures of parts per million and low levels of various byproducts might mean that pvc or polypropylene may be the best option.

With the strongest levels of chemicals and hydrocarbons, Western Environmental Liner can provide a unique and custom liner solution created specifically for your particular application.
