    Mine Water Management

    Managing water as an asset for mines

Mine Water Management Solution

Water is an essential resource for mining operations as well as for serving mining communities and facilities. The development of water infrastructure for mines is designed and managed to optimize its utilization, preservation, and sustainability, while protecting local supplies.

Our Mine Water Management solution offers integrated water infrastructure design, modeling, and analysis software for you to optimize the storage and utilization of water resources used in mining operations.

Capabilities
  • Assess fire flow capacity

    • ​Use a water distribution hydraulic model to access and identify where fire protection is inadequate. Design improvements such as the sizing and location of pipes, pumps, and tanks in order to meet fire-flow and protection requirements.
  • Calculate hydraulics

    • Quickly perform hydraulic calculations for dozens of hydraulic element types, from pipes and open channels to inlets and weirs.​
  • Design and analyze culverts

    • Select from a library of standard culvert shapes, materials, and entrance conditions, then compute culvert headwater and tailwater elevations using calculation methodologies outlined in Hydraulic Design Series Number 5 from the U.S. Federal Highway Administration.
  • Design and analyze pond and outlets

    • Leverage PondMaker's guiding process through the confusing maze of pond design steps by following the step-by-step process that provides constant feedback on how the design is progressing. Set the maximum outflow rate, estimate storage, and check the outlet design and final design.​
  • Design sanitary sewers

    • Minimize capital investments by simply entering your design restrictions: velocities, slopes, cover depths, and pipe and manhole matching offsets. SewerCAD/SewerGEMS recommends the most cost-effective pipe sizes and invert elevations, avoiding unnecessary pipe trench excavation, while meeting design restrictions.​​
  • Design stormwater systems

    • Minimize capital investments by simply entering your design restrictions: velocities, slopes, cover depths, and pipe and inlet matching offsets. The software product recommends the most cost-effective pipe sizes and invert elevations, avoiding unnecessary pipe trench excavation, while meeting design restrictions.​
  • Design water distribution systems

    • Use hydraulic model results to help optimize the design of complex water distribution systems and utilize built-in scenario management features to keep track of design alternatives. Alternatively, WaterGEMS users can optimize the design for you using the built-in Darwin Designer network optimization tool.​
  • Manage energy use

    • Model pumps accurately using hydraulic modeling, including complex pump combinations and variable speed pumps, to understand the impact that different pump operational strategies have on energy usage. Minimize energy related to pumping costs while maximizing system performance.​​​​
  • Model surcharge and flood protection

    • ​Use an integrated solution comprising hydraulic models for runoff and flow calculations, and 3D civil design tools to identify locations where system capacity is inadequate to handle heavy rainfall effectively. Then design facilities to prevent surcharge and flooding.
  • Simulate water quality

    • Simulate the generation, inflow, and transportation and treatment of any number of user-defined pollutants, such as total suspended solids or heavy metals.
