AMD Inc. has operated and maintained Banning No. 4 since 1988.
The Banning Plant is pumping 3.5 MGD of treated mine water which flows into the Youghiogheny River. The raw water has a pH of 7.0 and an iron concentration of approximately 30. Untreated water could potentially affect the town of West Newton, PA (Pop. 2,500). Since taking over this plant we changed the flow of sludge from pumped to gravity system reducing energy costs by $5,000 per month. We also downsized the motors on the aeration system eliminating the energy required for 2 motors that consumed 30 HP on a constant basis.
AMD Inc. has been treating the Mathies Mine Site since 2002.
We currently pump and treat 1.44 MGD of acid mine drainage plus treat an additional 1.87 MGD of gravity flow from the mine itself.
Clyde Plant has been operated by AMD Inc. under contract since 1997.
The Clyde mine is pumping 2.01 MGD of treated mine water which then flows into Ten Mile Creek. The outflow would affect Clarksville, PA (Pop. 5,000). The raw water has a pH of 6.0 and iron concentration of 196 mg/l.
AMD Inc. has been treating effluent from the Russelton Plant since 1989.
The Russellton Berry Plant in Allegheny County is pumping an average of 1.6 MGD of treated mine water daily. This treated water flows into Little Deer Creek, which is a local West Deer Township stocked trout stream.
Since 1994 the abandoned mine drainage treatment plant has been operated by AMD Inc. sister company Warrior Services Inc.
The Bird Mines are pumping 5.8 MGD of treated mine water daily. Water from Bird Mine in Tire Hill, Cambria County is pumped from the mines and then treated with quick lime, aerated, settled, and discharged in accordance with effluent limits.
AMD Inc. has been under contract for the Marianna Site since 2003.
Our staff performs MSHA Impoundment Inspections for Marianna. We inspect storm water runoff from a coal refuse disposal site and provide extensive maintenance of the facility including mowing 80 acres of brush and grass on an extremely steep embankment.
