Mine Site Characterization and Permitting

Mine design, permitting and compliance requires the services of experienced scientists and engineers with a comprehensive understanding of the owner/operator’s needs as well as the regulatory framework. Hydrometrics has experience in permitting and design support for hard rock open pit and underground mines as well as gravel pits in the western United States.  Our expertise in hydrogeological, geochemical and soils studies and environmental monitoring are key to effective permitting and compliance efforts.  Projects have included the baseline site investigations, facility design, reclamation plan development and permitting for new and expansion of existing mines.  Services include all aspects of environmental monitoring and investigations at active and inactive mine sites, as well as reclamation design and remediation of contaminated sites.  Hydrometrics can provide client support for a variety of compliance monitoring and permitting for water supply, water rights, water treatment, discharge permits and stormwater management.  Our staff of professional scientists and engineers is committed to employing proven technologies as well as innovative techniques to provide cost-effective solutions.
