Improve pit mining water management for a better bottom line Smarter water management in open pit mining starts with a holistic view of how your operation uses water. Xylem reviews your needs from sourcing to reuse and everything in between—including methods of quarrying and quarry dewatering. Whether water is scarce or plentiful at your site, we consider every step as part of a process rather than a standalone function. Let Xylem help you integrate water management into your open pit mining operation to increase productivity, reduce costs and turn an expense into a strategic advantage.
See benefits across pit mining operations. Open pit mine dewatering is a critical step that stabilizes pit mine walls during and after excavation, improves employee safety, and supports increased production. Dewatering is also important in reducing equipment wear and corrosion, and cutting material hauling—leading to reduced operating costs.
Meet regulatory requirements. The open pit method is under increasing scrutiny, with more pressure than ever to control resource use and environmental impact. Let Xylem help you take a strategic approach to quarry dewatering and site-wide water management, turning these systemic challenges into strategic advantages and maintaining profitability.
Work with a partner who understands pit mining challenges. For us, supporting open pit mining isn’t about offering a few key pieces of equipment and leaving you to figure out how to integrate them into your operation. Xylem is committed to providing everything you need to transport, treat and test water throughout exploration, development, operation and reclamation. Then we put it together in new, more meaningful ways to make your job easier, and your mine more efficient, increasing uptime and productivity.
