Acid Mine Drainage Water

Acid Mine Drainage Water

Acid mine drainage refers to the discharge of acidic water from an abandoned coal mine. Because of the oxidized iron precipitation, streams receiving AMD will have different color sediments at the bottom or on the riverside. The acidic discharge may also contain heavy metals, such as copper, lead, mercury, which will endanger the aquatic and botanic life. The most serious problems with acid ...
