This course discusses the principles and practice of surface water management at mines.
This course discusses the principles and practice of surface water management at mines. It describes best management practices for surface water management at a mine in order to achieve the following objectives.
All mines disturb the surface. All mines change the features of the mine site that affect precipitation runoff, evaporation, streamflow, and erosion. All mines involve grading of the site, diversion of runoff, and placement of wastes that increase or decrease infiltration of surface water to the groundwater. Inevitably at a mine it is necessary to capture and control sediments and other pollutants in surface water, and build and operate the works needed to comply with regulations regarding off-site impact by surface waters running from the mine.
The course comprises 16 viewing sessions, each of 30 - 60 minutes duration, plus supporting figures, tables, worked examples and references, and interactive reviews that confirm your achievement of the learning objectives. The total duration of the course is approximately 12 hours.
Identify the basic principles of site characterization for surface water management and apply these to typical mine facilities.Apply the principles of channel design, stream and reservoir routing, erosion control, infiltration control and runoff control to surface water management at a mine site.Evaluate practical engineering methods to control surface water flow to make mining safer, more cost-effective, and more environmentally friendly.
By completing/passing this course, you will attain the certificate Edumine Certification
This course is intended for all those people at a mine or associated with a mine who may be involved with or responsible for the hydrologic, hydraulic, environmental, civil, and mining engineering works required to manage surface water at a mine.
