Mining is posed with a number of unique drinking water quality risks that must be understood to protect worker health. The mining and exploration environment can effect groundwater quality and introduce harmful contaminants if not effectively managed. The management, monitoring and reporting requirements for drinking water quality are dependent on the water source and system setup. This begins at the source and a risk assessment of the catchment and analysis of raw water.
Does your mine require a Small Community Sample Grid or a Mine Sampling Grid to adequately capture and monitor harmful contaminants such as Vanadium? 360 Environmental can assist in the health and hygiene management practices for your site and offers expertise in drinking water quality management.
