Treatment and control of the liquid effluents produced during uranium mining and milling operations is an integral part of environmental project management. Research has continued to add to the large body of science that has been built up around the treatment of radioactive and non-radioactive effluents to minimize their long term environmental impact. The objective of the meetings on which this publication is based was to exchange information on active effluent treatment technologies that have application during operations and passive treatment techniques such as constructed wetlands and use of microorganisms that are applicable during project reclamation and long term care and maintenance. The papers included in this publication describe effluent treatment case histories from active uranium mining and processing operations. There are also papers that describe effluent treatment research on both active and passive systems that have potential application under a wide range of operating and post-operational conditions.
