Project Description

At the Drinking water treatment plant of Yachiyo-city, water tanks must be maintained. Total water tanks surface area of 3550 m2 must be refurbished and waterproofed.

Project Requirements

The lining must have an approval for drinking water application JWWA K-143. The system of Sikalastic® JW fulfills not only the waterproofing performance requirements according to JIS.
