Environmentally Sound Practices in the Aggregates Industry: Chapter 03: Water Quality
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 3 of 7 for this video. The protection of water resources is essential to mining operations. Process water is generated through plant operations. Process water can be managed through closed-loop process water settling ponds. Stormwater should be directed away from process water. If it comes in contact with process water it must be treated as process water. Regular inspections will ensure that your water controls are working properly. A spill and leak countermeasure control plan must be drawn up and kept onsite. Petroleum products should be properly protected and stored. The plant is responsible for any onsite spill regardless of the source.
