Short description: Case studies examining treatment technologies used for remediating mining-influenced water (MIW) and mining wastes have been conducted at many hard rock mining sites and range in type from bench studies to full-scale field studies. The research in this report was conducted to capture the capabilities, efficiencies, technological and site-specific requirements, and lessons learned for technologies and methods used. To work toward meeting these goals, EPA conducted a literature search in order to accumulate, evaluate, and consolidate case studies that documented active or passive treatment systems or methods being used (or previously used) at active and inactive hard rock mining sites for remediating contaminants from various mining wastes and MIW.
