Apex Engineering served as a technical consultant on this project, which was managed by Morrison-Maierle, Inc. The project required researching and evaluating treatment alternatives (biological and chemical) for removing nitrate and ammonia from mine water at this proposed mine in northwestern Montana. The design flow rate is 200 gpm. This system was designed by Apex and Morrison-Maierle in 2008; the mine is still waiting for full regulatory approval before construction can begin.
