The mining industry has to comply with regulations and ensure that the quality of water exiting mine sites is not affecting water users downstream, mining companies develop water management plans to minimize the potential for water contamination, and to prevent the release of polluted water into the environment. Surrounding surface and groundwater quality is monitored, and a number of treatment processes can be used to ensure mine water meets regulatory standards prior to being discharged. There are a number of different treatment technologies available to clean contaminated water. The treatment technology used at a mine depends on how polluted the water is, what chemicals need to be removed, how much water requires treatment, and the required discharge water quality standards.
Depending on the clients expectation for final water quality, a mine may use ion exchange filters or a reverse osmosis system. Water Treatment Specialists specialize in the manufacturing of water treatment and reverse osmosis systems for these types of applications.
