COMANCO Completes Pond Liner Replacement for Santa Sweets, a Local Produce Company in Plant City, Florida. 

COMANCO is proud to announce the successful completion of a geosynthetic liner replacement project for a member of the Plant City community, Santa Sweets – the growers behind the famous Authentic Grape Tomato.

Local Expertise for Local Businesses

COMANCO shares a special connection with Santa Sweets as a fellow Plant City neighbor. Both companies prioritize providing quality products and environmental sustainability. Because of this shared vision, COMANCO was perfect partner to reline the retention pond at Santa Sweets’ distribution facility.

Upgrading for Long-Term Performance

The project involved installing 19,849 square feet of a premium 45-mil reinforced polypropylene (PP) liner. Because this state-of-the-art material boasts exceptional strength, durability, and chemical resistance, the integrity of the containment system will be safeguarded for years to come.

COMANCO’s Meticulous Approach

Led by Superintendent Juan Morales and Foreman Ramon Irrizary, the COMANCO team tackled the project with precision:

  • Seamless Integration: Pre-fabricated panels, meticulously crafted by our trusted partners, EPI (Environmental Protection Inc.) in Traverse City, MI, ensured a smooth and efficient installation.
  • Enhanced Stability: Removing existing batten bars and metal structures allowed for optimal liner placement, promoting stability and reducing the risk of movement.
  • Reinforced Foundation: Washout areas were addressed by fixing the subgrade and excavating/backfilling a new anchor trench. This then creates a more robust foundation for the liner, bolstering its resilience against factors like erosion.
  • Added Slope Protection: We placed 6-foot ballast tubes along the slope’s toe for additional stabilization, therefore minimizing erosion risks and potential slope failure.

Benefits Beyond Containment

COMANCO’s comprehensive approach yielded significant benefits for Santa Sweets:

  • Reduced Leak Risk: The new, reinforced liner minimizes the likelihood of leaks or breaches, protecting valuable resources and the surrounding environment.
  • Long-Term Performance: The upgraded system ensures reliable performance for years to come.
  • Enhanced Safety: The project’s focus on stability and erosion control contributes to a safer environment for both the facility and surrounding areas.
