Coal and Water Pollution Union of Concerned Scientists

Dec 06, 2017 Coal mining. Mining operations can negatively impact water supplies, often with long-lasting effects. The fundamental issue involves contamination of nearby rivers, lakes, and aquifers by what comes out of a coal mine—usually highly acidic water containing heavy metals like arsenic, copper, and lead. The process is known as acid mine drainage.It happens when certain substances (typically

Mining and Water Pollution — Safe Drinking Water Foundation

Jan 23, 2017 Types of Water Pollution from Mining. There are four main types of mining impacts on water quality. 1. Acid Mine Drainage Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) is a natural process whereby sulphuric acid is produced when sulphides in rocks are exposed to air and water. Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) is essentially the same process, greatly magnified.
