Does any one have experience with the construction of ponds and lakes?

I'm making a research on the detailing and I'm having some troubles because I don't find many examples in Portugal.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks 
João

I've worked on wetland projects that used a bentonite liner. There are companies that package it in large 20' wide rolls here in the US. If I remember correctly it needs to be placed on a layer of compacted sand. A supplier will probably have installation details. Have you found any bentonite suppliers there in Portugal?
