Mining Industry Spill Solutions
ABASCO is uniquely qualified to help the mining industry comply with the demands of government regulations regarding water treatment and spill incidents. Mining baffles, oil skimmers, booms, and a complete assortment of spill response equipment prevent and contain spills of diesel fuel and a variety of fluids used in the mining process, including acids.
Additionally, we are capable of custom designing baffle curtains to control the large amounts of sediment created during the mining process, helping prevent sediment from being discharged into lakes, streams and other surrounding bodies of water. Our turbidity curtains are generally used for shorter-term construction projects at the site.
Regulations & Requirements
The National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, created under the Clean Water Act, requires construction site operators to prepare a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) to obtain an NPDES permit for their stormwater discharges. This applies to any operators clearing, grading, or excavating at sites larger than one acre affecting virtually every mining operation in the United States.
ABASCO products are regularly utilized at drainage or lagoon areas as part of the SWPPP, helping the mining operation control, collect, and dispose of any pollutants that could affect the quality of stormwater discharges from the site.
ABASCO has the expertise, training, and manufacturing capabilities to produce mining cleanup equipment suitable for applications worldwide.
Water treatment utilizing baffles to reduce solids, contain hydrocarbons or provide treatment zones are commonly used at mining locations.
