When mining activities on a site cease, owners and communities may face a number challenges: soil remediation, re-vegetation, isolating contaminants from waterways, runoff control, etc. Importantly, they ask: What else can be done with the site? Is it able to be beneficially reused? Geosynthetics commonly play a vital role in cleaning up and protecting sites. Geosynthetics also are key to how geot... »
