#259 Copper Mine Stormwater Retention Basin

This copper mine in Utah annually removes solids from its wash-water sediment pond and now prefers dredging the residuals and dewatering them in Geotube® containers prior to processing them through the plant to reclaim the precious metals. WaterSolve, LLC provides the polymer make-down equipment, polymer, Geotube® containers, and site management for the tubes. The mine has reduced the risk of puncturing the liner along with heavy fines caused by previous excavation processes.
