Water treatment to remove contaminant metals, acid and pH control are so important when groundwater aquifers and surface water bodies need to be protected. Remediation of AMD water bodies is quick and efficient when mobile Lime Dosing Units are called in to treat emergency situations.
Protection in major rain events is afforded in the Pilbara from acid water generated from exposed sulphidic shales, confidently treating pooled acid water before reinfiltration into sensitive environmental locations. Long-term treatment regimes have also been employed to reduce corrosiveness due to high acid waters in the MidWest and prolonging the life of expensive and specialised equipment. As well as treatment processes, tested by time, in the power and coal industries within the Collie district, South West of Western Australia having successfully operated since the early 1980’s.
