Environmental Engineering

 Acid Rock Drainage at a Welsh Coal Mine

Engineering services are provided to develop or remediate mines to current environmental standards. Environmental problems and solutions usually involve a combination of technologies, including geochemistry, geotechnics, hydrogeology, hydrology, acid mine drainage, water chemistry and contaminant transport, land use, revegetation, and a thorough understanding of regulatory requirements together with the engineering options and controls that may be applicable. Environmental engineering services provided include site assessments to determine if environmental problems exist or could develop, evaluations of alternative control measures and the design and construction supervision of mine waste storage facilities and specific environmental protection measures (e.g. covers, liners).

Typical Services Include

  • Site Selection
  • ARD Prediction & Control
  • Design of Tailings Storage Facilities
  • Design of Cover & Liner Systems
