Mining

Mining is a growing market in the industrial water and wastewater industry. Mining directly impacts surface water, groundwater, and other waterways and estuaries. Mining practices, such as hydrofracturing (commonly referred to as fracking) are growing rapidly, and social pressures have led many mining operations to consider better water reuse, water conservation and greywater remediation techniques to meet increasingly strict wastewater discharge limits.
