WASTEWATER TREATMENT DURING TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION ON BUREAU OF RECLAMATION PROJECTS
In recent years, a number of papers have been written concerned with water pollution control during dam construction. These papers described treatment measures undertaken to minimize water pollution from point and nonpoint sources during construction. They suggest ways to avoid pollution problems related to haul roads, borrow areas, stream diversion, foundation excavation, aggregate processing, batching of concrete, and reservoir clearing. Often tunnel construction results in water pollution problems quite different from dam construction. This paper describes wastewater treatment used during tunnel construction on Bureau of Reclamation projects and discusses its effectiveness. Further, it discusses legal requirements to meet State and federal water pollution laws and regulations.
