Ground and surface water can be contaminated by the transport of soluble oxidation products from sulfidic mine waste impoundments. A program was designed whereby an impoundment that contained sulfidic waste was studied to characterize pore water in the impoundment and to determine the fate of metals as they were transported downgradient. From this information a method to control dissolved metal transport was identified.

An appropriate field site where a sulfidic tailings impoundment was releasing heavy metals into an unconsolidated aquifer was identified and characterized over a 2.5 year period. Twenty-four piezometers and two lysimeters were installed upgradient from, within,...
