SAFETY-1

Safety

The personal safety and health of each employee in this company is of primary importance. The prevention of occupationally induced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it will be given precedence over operating productivity whenever necessary. All of us at COMANCO will maintain an Environmental, Health and Safety program conforming to the best practices in our industry. To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward accident prevention not only on the part of both management and employees, but also between employee and fellow workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety record in the best interest of all be established and preserved.

QUALITY

Quality

COMANCO is an industry leader by virtue of incorporating new technologies into our services. We are pioneering the use of sub-centimeter precise GPS technology in documenting the construction of geosynthetic liners. Our proprietary program, Computer Aided As-Built (CAAB®), caabincreases accuracy, reduces post job processing time, and provides a useful material management tool. Upon completion of the job, As-Builts are available to the customer as an AutoCAD® (.dxf) file. Liner installation is documented in real time allowing QC technicians to identify and correct errors early. Our advancements in technology greatly improve the quality of construction.

Service

Customer service is our highest priority. For more than 20 years we have dedicated ourselves to reaching the highest level of customer satisfaction. Whether small liner repairs, challenging 400 acre multi-layered lining systems or multi-disciplined projects requiring earthmoving, piping and geosynthetics installation, the goal is always the same – Customer Satisfaction. No project is complete until our clients expectations have been met or exceeded. COMANCO will deliver the lowest final cost, in the shortest time frame, with the highest quality product and an overriding commitment to safety.

Customer Service is Our Highest Priority.

WHY CHOOSE COMANCO?

Agriculture

agriculture

Recently enacted environmental legislation makes the containment of wastewater and animal waste a requirement rather than an option.  COMANCO provides cost effective solutions to prevent seepage of runoff that contain nitrates, ammonia, phosphorous and bacteria that can harm and foul waterways.  However, these contaminants – if properly contained and managed – can be applied as land nutrients, leading to a significant reduction in fertilizer costs.

Using the highest quality geosynthetic liner material, COMANCO builds lined and/or covered storage basins that allow for the retention of liquid and semi-solid waste for subsequent controlled disposal or land application.  Additionally, to prevent contaminants from entering into the surrounding environment, geosynthetic covered containment systems are also effective at reducing or eliminating odors. Traditional compacted soil and clay liners are simply not enough.  In addition to constructing new containment ponds and canal liners, COMANCO can also reline your existing ponds.

Climate change and population growth have increased the demand for water, while America’s farmers are being asked to produce more with less.  At COMANCO, we are committed to doing our part through the use of advanced materials and systems to conserve water and prevent contamination of the groundwater and adjacent streams.

Since 1989, COMANCO has been working with the agricultural industry, across the country, to find and implement cost-effective solutions to help mitigate their legal and environmental risk.  Our highly trained engineers, quality control technicians and field installers ensure the job is done the right way, ‘The COMANCO Way’.  We test every weld and seam and follow strict production protocols, because your business and our reputation depend on it.

Aquaculture

aquaculture-sm

Last summer, COMANCO installed a lining system for a fishing and recreational pond in Pocatello, Idaho.  The 8-acre pond consisted of 60-mil Textured High Density polyethylene (HDPE), 8-ounce Non-Woven Geotextile and 200-mil (8-ounce) DS Geocomposite.  The channel feeding the pond was also lined with 60-mil Textured HDPE and was then covered with river rock to give a more natural look.  More than a dozen channel flaps were installed throughout the small creek, in order to create deeper pools of water for the transplanted trout and salmon to spawn.

COMANCO is the leader in building geomembrane lined Aquaculture ponds and lagoons for:

  • Fish hatcheries
  • Fish farming
  • Recreational fishing facilities
  • Shrimp and oyster farming
  • Seaweed and algae production

Geosynthetic liners installed by COMANCO offer the most economical and cost-effective solutions for modern aquaculture.  Once installed, the geomembrane offers superior leak protection and is virtually maintenance free.

Decorative Ponds

decorative-pond-2

Decorative ponds provide an added dimension to any architectural design.  COMANCO recently completed a project for the Florida Polytechnic University, lining seven ponds with 60-mil HDPE smooth geomembrane liner.  COMANCO then added two feet of soil, with sod, to cover the exposed banks, creating a natural look once the ponds were filled with water.  The time to complete each pond was approximately one week.

COMANCO installs decorative ponds for:

  • Golf Courses
  • Reflecting Ponds for Monuments
  • Commercial and Municipal Fountains
  • Artificial Landscape Features
  • Amusement Parks and Zoos
  • Private Homes
  • Public Gardens
  • Resorts

A decorative pond or lagoon lined with a geomembrane is vastly superior to the compacted clay-lined ponds of the past.  Compacted clay liners are expensive to install and tend to crack and leak over time.

COMANCO installs geosynthetic liners quickly and economically using minimal equipment.  The flexibility of the geomembrane allows the liner to conform to any size and shape and can accommodate the most creative design requirements.  The edges of the liner can be blended into the surrounding landscape creating an undetectable transition.

To add the beauty of a decorative pond or lagoon to your next project, contact a COMANCO Specialist and discover the COMANCO difference.

Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying

COMANCO IS ‘BEST IN SHOW’ IN MY BOOK. COME ON SITE AND TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS!

Ron Kinney, Landfill Site Manger· Progressive Waste Solutions

I continue to be impressed by the level of service that COMANCO provides, I can’t think of any possible way we could be better served by COMANCO.

Kendal Williams, Engineering Technician· Murphy Brown, LLC

I have said it countless times, but as people tend to criticize more often than they complement, so this deserves to be said over and over. Gary Mitchell and his entire crew is a fantastic asset to COMANCO. Just to watch them unload the liner trucks is comparable to watching a conductor conduct a symphony. The team is well oiled and ready. Gary takes the time to lay out the work both from the field and the personnel perspectives before the work even starts. The liner unloading crew anticipates what is happening and is prepared with the next move. We had people from the plant come out just to see how well this system works. Please pat Gary and all of the team on the back because this is the culture that every other contractor strives to create.

Danielle Kapanowski, Capital Projects Safety Specialist · Mosaic Fertilizer, LLC

I would like to comment on all the staff that worked with the County, even the laborers… they were very professional and friendly. The supervisors were outstanding… the overall experience for me, Teresa Carver, was GREAT
