AMDTreat Software

Description

Acid mine drainage pollution abatement cost estimating software.

Fact Sheet

Read the TIPS Data Sheet for AMDTreat (pdf).

USERS

AML Reclamation Specialists and Hydrologists

SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD

To download the AMDTreat + PHREEQ, visit the AMDTreat website at https://amd.osmre.gov.

USES

AMDTreat+PHREEQ can assist a user in estimating costs and sizing facilities to abate water pollution, using passive or chemical treatment technologies. Treatment systems , vertical flow ponds, anoxic limestone drains, anaerobic wetlands, bioreactors, caustic soda, hydrated lime, pebble quicklime, soda ash treatment and other systems can be evaluated.

Version 5 now includes a built-in module of the USGS geochemical code PHREEQ. The user can simulate the addition of chemical, composition of a solution, and selected mineral phases over a range of pH in the chemical cost module. The results can be used to select target pH for optimal treatment.

The software provides over 400 user modifiable variables for excavation, construction, revegetation, piping, road construction, land acquisition, system maintenance, labor, water sampling, design, surveying, pumping, sludge removal, chemical consumption, and other functions. The default cost data can be modified to adjust for inflation or site specific requirements.
