UCCE Project Spotlight: Mining Operation Needed to Treat Contaminated Groundwater

UCC Environmental is committed to solving groundwater challenges in an economical, compliant, and safe way. When a mining customer needed a treatment solution for contaminated groundwater, UCCE was able to assist. The operation is required to pump groundwater to keep abandoned mining excavations above the water table. The water had high concentrations of mercury, iron, and manganese, which needed to be removed before discharge.

Upon thorough analysis of the process, UCCE provided a value-engineered design concept which included the chemical oxidation of manganese followed by chemical precipitation and filtration. The system is engineered to flow by gravity, which streamlines the process. It includes two greensand pressure filters, two tanks, and several pump skids. Eliminating some of the equipment used in the original system has reduced the system’s footprint and simplified its operation. Other advantages of the UCCE system include lower capital, operational, and maintenance costs. The benefits of the UCCE value-engineered design resulted in their selection as the preferred supplier to design and supply the process equipment and treat the contaminated groundwater.
