Complying with current regulations
All industrial activities generate wastewater that needs to be treated before it’s released into the environment. So, you need to implement effective water treatment systems and technologies that reflect the characteristics of the receiving environment.
A resource to preserve at all project and operational stages
Water is a valuable resource that you need to preserve at every stage of your project. When planning to build new infrastructure, you must demonstrate that your water treatment plant is reliable and rigorous to obtain the required permits. The same obligations apply if you’re expanding an existing facility.
Once operations have started, you need to properly maintain your water treatment facilities. You may also have to make frequent adjustments to optimize treatment performance and protect waterways and groundwater. Finally, throughout your operations and even after you’ve ceased operations (especially for mines), you have to plan for wastewater treatment and, in many cases, set up water treatment infrastructures that will operate in perpetuity.
