Evaporation occurs through wind and heat – dam covers will reduce both these factors and hence dramatically reduce water lost through evaporation.
Between 2002 and 2007, NetPro Pty Ltd was involved with a research project coordinated by the NCEA (National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture) for the development of technology to control evaporation from water storages. (Tech. Ref. **5). From this research our most popular dam cover structure was developed,
The NETPRO EVAPORATION CANOPY/DAM COVER uses a combination of specially designed high-tensile steel cable, terminations and a modified knitted high-density shade-cloth cover.
