    06/12/2017· Coal mining. Mining operations can negatively impact water supplies, often with long-lasting effects. The fundamental issue involves contamination of nearby rivers, lakes, and aquifers by what comes out of a coal mine—usually highly acidic water containing heavy metals like arsenic, copper, and lead. The process is known as acid mine drainage.It happens when certain substances (typically

    Coal Mine Water Pollution: An Acid Problem With Murky

    Coal mine water pollution is a problem in two forms: phys-ical pollution, resulting from increased deposits in mountain streams when the soil's protective vegetative cover is removed by excavation, and chemical pollution, caused by the dissolu-tion and oxidation action of surface elements on exposed min- erals in the overburden.'" Erosion, the beginning of physical pollution, is usually a

    Impact 2: mining pollution driving water scarcity. Coal mining, especially open-cast mining, is responsible for complete environmental destruction, and has huge impacts to local water resources; groundwater needs to be pumped out of the ground, forests needs to be cut down and fertile top soil are removed in order to access the coal; and in the process destroying valuable underground aquefers
