ESC Guide - Blackwater Mine

bma_blackwaterO2 was commissioned by Texcel Solutions to prepare the Erosion and Sediment Control Guidance document for the BMA Blackwater Mine. BMA Blackwater Mine is one of the largest open-cut coal mines in Australia, producing almost 14 million tonnes of coking and thermal coal a year. 

BMA Blackwater Mine has nominated a number of activities on site that have potential environmental risk. The key pollutant of concern and addressed in this report is sediment. There are a number of guidelines in Australia that address sediment management generally referred to as Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC).

The scope of this report was to provide a general erosion and sediment control implementation guide within the constraints of current Mining practices.
