Preservation of surface water: (1) Most of water loss thought seepage in reservoir, Use the geomembrane to seal such loss, (2) Evaporation is little, can be prevented. This method has been tried and tested for last 10-15 years for several locations; "Special geomembranes" were developed for this. Two representative pictures are included. Any effective geomembranes could be used. (only those with a life time of several decades). This superb solution could be used for several location with water scarcity, for example, "Cap Town in South Africa",
