Core features are free forever
Exploration, development, extraction, beneficiation, processing, and waste management activities associated with mining projects can have a variety of impacts on the environment.
How does it work?
The potential effects include destruction or alteration of wildlife habitats, erosion, sedimentation, generation of windblown particulates, pollutant loading to groundwater and surface water from acid mine/rock drainage, and/or process solution leaks, spills, and surface subsidence. Use the app to incorporate pollution prevention into designing alternatives and avoiding and mitigating environmental effects. The app includes a detailed checklist specific to mining projects. The Pollution Prevention Act (PPA), established a national policy mandating the incorporation of pollution prevention concepts and techniques into the operations and activities of the Federal Government. Pollution should be prevented or reduced at the source. The EPA Pollution Prevention Checklist for Mining Projects mobile app allows you to replace your paper prevention checklist with a tablet or smartphone. The mobile form includes fields to document items such as date of pollution prevention check, company, the person completing the check of mining projects, title and captures a signature and records comments and corrective actions. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your air quality control records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form.
