Between drains, pumps, plumbing and maintenance ports, mining ponds often feature multiple penetrations through the sides and bottom of the geomembrane liner.
In addition to protecting the ground from seepage with buried liners, mining facilities need to consider stopping rain from infiltrating heaps of raw material.
Evaporation ponds are widely used throughout the various branches of the mining industry.
While geomembranes are practically required by many of today’s modern mining projects, they’re not without installation considerations.
With so many uses for geomembranes in the mining industry, during both active and closed stages of a project, it’s no wonder they’re so widely used.
It’s not enough to simply specify certain mining geomembranes during the original construction of a mine.
In addition to being universally popular for road construction and pond lining projects alike, geomembranes are essential for the mining industry.
You’ll find dozens of mentions of geomembranes in the recommendations and standards for mining facilities in most states, but the exact definition of this term isn’t always clear.
On the opposite end of the water storage spectrum, groundwater is often pumped during periods of high volume and stored for future use.
Finding opportunities to reuse the processed groundwater, produced by mining and drilling, prevents environmental damage while saving money.
Failed, or leaking, groundwater lagoons aren’t necessarily beyond repair.
Durable and flexible liners made from a high-quality polymer work best for groundwater storage lagoons and ponds of all kinds.
If you’re looking for standards from the EPA regarding groundwater and wastewater storage, you’ll need to determine whether you’re building a lagoon or a pond.
Power generation plants, natural gas extraction sites and hydraulic fracturing all require groundwater for cooling or processing.
