The report analyzes and documents the rationale and related methodology for monitoring groundwater pollution caused by mining and mineral processing. Notes that some mines and waste-disposal areas will continue to be pollution sources long after the mines have closed, and that because of the broad range of mining activities and diversity of geologic and hydrologic settings, monitoring programs for mineral operations must be individually considered. The report reviews technology for at-source control of water pollution from mining and points out that some methods used to improve surface water quality may cause deterioration in groundwater quality. It also discusses existing state and Federal laws and regulations for control of mine drainage pollution and the inability of most to influence the design, permitting, or abandonment of underground mines on the basis of water pollution considerations.
