Acid Mine Drainage Treatment

Aquatech can offer the best environmentally friendly solutions to difficult-to-treat acid mine drainage wastewater. Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) is a common problem faced in coal mining areas. AMD is the polluted water flowing from abandoned coal mines and takes place when groundwater comes into contact with the remains of coal. AMD is severely contaminated and is hazardous to the environment.

AMD wastewater treatment differs depending upon several parameters such as site conditions, the quantity of water to be treated and contamination levels. Since each discharge is highly variable and requires different treatment, Aquatech’s offerings in both biological as well as chemical acid mine drainage treatment can satisfy the strictest government limits and the most stringent industry norms.
