This book accompanies you on a journey that starts with the basics of mine water and takes you further through correct sampling for planning to active and passive purification systems. In the respective chapters you will learn the most important techniques about the parameters to be measured (e.g. on-site parameters, flow rate), which methods are available to actively purify your mine water (e.g. thick sludge method, reverse osmosis, ion exchange) and which ones to perform passive purification (e.g. constructed wetlands, vertical flow reactor, carbonate channel). You will also get an insight into the use of mine water. Don’t expect a cookbook – rather, it’s an ingredients and utensils list to help you find the right recipe. For extended help on this, check out the nearly 1000 references on all the techniques presented. I wrote this book for hydrogeologists, engineers, graduate students, government officials, miners, geoecologists, chemical engineers – in the broadest sense, you.
