South Crofty Mine – Water Treatment Plant

YES was commissioned to work on three aspects of the water treatment plant’s planning and permitting process as follows:

  • Contaminated Land Risk Assessment (Phase 1 Desk Study and Phase 2 Site Investigation) – Reports deliverable to Cornwall Council
  • Environmental Permit for the Groundwater Abstraction from the Mine Workings – Application made to the Environment Agency
  • Production of the Environmental Risk Assessments and written Management Scheme for the operation of the water treatment plant – Reports deliverable to Cornwall Council and the Environment Agency

YES is delighted to say that the plant officially began treating mine water on 26th October 2023!
