Contaminated water from mining operations presents tremendous
environmental challenges for the industry. Winner Water Services
can help. HydroFlex is a practical and economical alternative
for treating sulfates and other contaminants in mine waste water.
Storing or transporting contaminated water from mining operations
generates significant costs and risks for mining companies.
Dewatering working mines or associated impoundments may be the
best approach to reducing the potential for accidental releases
associated with long-term storage and containment. However,
water must meet stringent environmental regulations before it
can be released. The rising cost of many traditional treatment
technologies has made this option economically impractical for
In order to reduce long-term liabilities and meet environmental
permitting requirements, mining companies need an integrated
approach to water management that is both technically feasible
and cost effective. HydroFlex provides a practical, economical
alternative to long-term storage and containment of contaminated
mine water. Because Hydroflex can be a standalone treatment
option, the system operates in the most economical way possible.
It is helping mining companies meet their goals for environmental
stewardship and get the most out of their water management budgets.
The EPA has imposed more stringent environmental regulations
on coal-fired power plants. HydroFlex can be an excellent tool
meet effluent limitations and help power companies ensure that
they are compliant with the Clean Water Act.
The HydroFlex process is significantly less expensive than
trucking wastewater away to be stored or treated. And unlike
lime beds, it can also remove sulfates to discharge standards,
making water safe for reuse in industrial operations or environmental
release. HydroFlex helps power companies meet new environmental
regulations by efficiently removing metal cations as well as
sulfate, selenium, phosphorous and nitrogen anions from wastewater.
The technology meets EPA recommendations that power plants design
and operate a water treatment system on site and reduces the
risk of accidental releases from coal waste dumps
Oil & Gas
Winner Water Services is a leader in delivering environmentally optimized,
fully integrated water solutions for the oil and gas industry.
Our innovative HydroFlex technology puts contaminated water
from abandoned mines to good use for hydraulic fracturing operations.
The mobility and flexibility of Hydroflex enables us to offer
sulfate removal where you need it most.
Millions of gallons of water are collecting in abandoned mines
throughout the Appalachian area and in western states. Left
untreated, Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) from these mines can have
significant environmental and economic consequences. But with
HydroFlex, abandoned mine pools can become an economical and
convenient source of water for hydraulic fracturing and other
Water purification and sulfate recovery has been demonstrated
at two separate mine impacted water sites in Pennsylvania. In
demonstration projects at Fawn Mine in Sarver, PA, HydroFlex
has been shown to reduce sulfate concentrations in AMD by up
to 90%—a significant improvement over competing technologies.
The field system operation has demonstrated the ability to
treat water to a variety of standards depending on the end user
requirements. The current 100 GPM HydroFlex system is made up
of skid-mounted units to flexibly treat a variety of water sources
while maintaining the ability to be relocated to different demonstration
