Effective and efficient water management is a key aspect of all mining operations and is often the single most important consideration for developing an environmentally safe and sustainable mining project.
Knight Piésold has designed water management systems for mining projects throughout the world. Our numerous site specific integrated water management plans integrate a thorough understanding of the site specific hydrometeorology, surface water hydrology, groundwater, waste characterization, and the various aspects of the overall mine development. We utilize probabilistic modeling when appropriate to ensure that all extreme scenarios can be identified and addressed in order to meet sustainability objectives, and in providing flow estimates to support engineering design and environmental studies.
