Environmental Management at Aggregate Operations
The aggregate industry deals with water throughout the construction season. To excavate gravel or rock the water table may need to be lowered. Washing of sand gravel or crushed stone may be needed to ensure it meets product specifi ions. The following activities at aggregate operations require a water quality permit from the MPCA:
Water recycling on sand and aggregate washing plants CDE

P and Q University Lesson 9- Washing and Classifying : Pit and Quarry
Washing sand and aggregate results in the discharge of dirty water from wet screening decks sand screws or sand classifiers. The wastewater typically carries fines out to a series of settling ponds. While this is the most common method of treating wash water fines it is not the most sustainable method.

Operations and Maintenance Manual
Aggregate washing usually runs from mid-spring April to late fall November . During this time the quarry water is recirculated from the Sump to the Freshwater Pond to aggregate washing to the settling ponds and back to the Sump. From the end of November to early/mid spring aggregate washing usually does not occur. If the water

by many operations at sand and gravel processing plants such as conveying screening crushing and storing operations. Generally these materials are wet or moist when handled and process emissions are often negligible. A substantial portion of these emissions may consist of heavy particles that settle out within the plant.

Further it states that ‘Suitable provision should be made for the washing out of concrete mixing plant or ready-mixed concrete lorries. Such washings must not be allowed to flow into any drain or watercourse’. Ready-mixed concrete trucks should not be allowed to wash out anywhere other than the areas designated for the purpose.

Save Water When Washing Aggregate - AsphaltPro Magazine
Advanced washing systems such as Haver and Boecker’s Hydro-Clean when paired with a settling pond can reduce water consumption by as much as 75 percent over traditional washing systems. That allows operations to cut their water use and limit their water treatment requirements and necessary equipment.

Settling Pond Problems. Settling ponds also known as settling basins decant ponds or tailing ponds are used for process water sedimentation. This process can be slow and requires a large site footprint. Mucking ponds and shutting down early to ‘let it settle’ kills production hours.
Tailings and Water Management McLanahan
Settling ponds are large manmade relatively calm bodies of water used to store tailings. They allow the suspended solids in a slurry to separate from the liquid. Over time the suspended solids settle to the bottom of the pond and accumulate there leaving the water on top relatively free of contaminants so it can be pumped back to the
