This copy is not suitable for continued utilization and is intended only for comment purposes. 

Final publication of the standard may take several months. When it is available, a notice will be published in the official notice section of Journal - American Water Works Association. The standard becomes an effective AWWA standard on the first day of the month following such publication in Journal - American Water Works Association

This standard pertains to geomembrane materials supplied in sheet form for lining, covering, or covering potable water reservoirs. The successful application of this standard is dependent on an appropriate site evaluation, design, material selection, construction, as well as operations and maintenance. This standard includes requirements for material properties, fabrications, and installation. 

AWWA Manual M25 complements this standard by providing supplemental definitions of terms, as well as design, installation, operation and maintenance considerations for geomembrane systems.

This is a reaffirmation and no substantive changes have been made.
