Open Pit

The first step in the mining process may not be what you think

Groundwater control and dewatering is a vital part of nearly any open pit and underground mine because it helps:

  • Stabilize the mine pit walls during and after excavation
  • Improve safety at the mine site for employees
  • Increase mine production
  • Reduce operating costs by reducing wear and corrosion on equipment and cutting material hauling costs

As a result, dewatering pumps are one of the first pieces of equipment in a mine. For some, groundwater is a minor impediment and can be managed as required. Others might need a planned, integrated dewatering strategy to sustain operations. Either way, Xylem can meet your dewatering needs for rainwater, groundwater, process waste removal and more.
