Treatment of surface water from a stone quarry

The surface water occurring at a stone quarry is polluted with fine mineral particles and is to be treated before discharge.

Functional description:

The surface water is transported to a pump sump through existing chutes. A pump with a capacity of 72 m³/h constantly pumps the water to the lamella separator. Excess water, resulting from heavy rainfall is led directly into the river via an emergency overflow.

The mineral particles are separated as sludge in the Leiblein lamella separator. The purified water flows via the existing settling basin to the discharge system. The sludge from the lamella separator is exported from time to time and removed with a wheel loader.

Treatment of surface water occurring at a stone quarry – an ideal solution!
