Hallaton to Compete in GeoGames 2019

Work Hard, Play Hard

When we learned that the GeoGames were debuting at Geosynthetics Conference 2019, we eagerly applied for the exciting challenge. Hosted by the International Association of Geosynthetics Installers (IAGI) and sponsored by AGRU America, this outdoor event will feature welding competitions by teams of installers.

The GeoGames are a fun way to highlight the technical work of geosynthetics installers. The teams of certified welding technicians will compete to weld various geomembranes in different configurations (such as pipe boots and challenging angles) while still maintaining high quality work. Each team will be asked to extrusion weld and wedge weld, and judges will award points for both quality and speed of installation.

If you’re attending Geosynthetics Conference 2019, come on over to Discovery Green Park (across the street from Marriott Marquis Houston) on Tuesday, Feb 12, 5–7 pm and cheer us on. We’re hoping to bring home the trophy!

Hallaton Installs New Bituminous Liner at Bel Air Water Impoundment

The town of Bel Air in Harford County, Maryland, is a growing Baltimore suburb. As the population has increased, so has the need for more drinking water.

Hallaton is pleased to be part of the environmentally-sound, long-term solution to increase the potable water capacity for Bel Air residents. In order to provide a 100-day supply in case of a drought or emergency, Maryland American Water Company has constructed a new 13-acre, 90-million-gallon capacity water impoundment. The impoundment was constructed in 2018 and went into full service in 2019.

First on the East Coast to Install Bituminous Geomembrane (Coletanche ES4 HFA)

Allan Myers contracted us to provide and install the impoundment’s liner system during the summer of 2018. The exciting part of this water containment project was installing a different type of geosynthetic geomembrane—Coletanche ES4 HFA, which is a bituminous geomembrane manufactured by Axter Coletanche. Currently there have only been a select number of projects in the United States where this material has been installed. Continue reading

Hallaton Wins National Waste & Recycling Association 2018 MD Chapter Golf Tournament

If you see a Hallaton crew at a golf course, it might be because we’re installing liner for their ornamental pond. But when it comes time for the NWRA annual golf tournament, we’re out there hitting the irons—and trying to avoid those ponds.

Hallaton Installs Gas Collection System and Geosynthetic Liner System at Loyola Field

From Landfill to Athletic Field

In 2012, Loyola University Maryland clinched the NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse National Championship. The triumphant team brought the winning medal back to their home field—Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. Less than a decade earlier, however, that athletic field was hosting a different kind of metal—scrap metal, from a landfill.

The athletic complex is partially situated on top of a former municipal solid waste landfill, but the location is perfect. It is conveniently located near Loyola’s campus and I-83, but there have been challenges with the field.
