Description: The mine opening was exposed to allow free flow of the mine drainage out of the mine. The discharge then flows into the initial sediment basin, from there down a rock channel and into the vertical flow system for treatment. The water is then discharged into a final settling basin and then into an aerobic wetland for final polishing.
