The UV disinfection of water used in mining processes ensures compliance with regulations and prevents the release of unsafe water.

Mining methods such as quarrying and milling use water for the extraction of minerals in processes called grinding, separating and dust suppression.  The water used may be municipal wastewater or deep groundwater that is already of poor quality so needs to be carefully managed and treated afterwards to ensure it does not contaminate nearby water sources.

Due to their often remote locations, mining operations may have an additional requirement for safe drinking and camp water, in which case UV disinfection systems will form an important part of the water treatment and storage processes.
