Mine Water and the Environment, editor-in-chief: Bob Kleinmann
Members of the International Mine Water Association (IMWA) share a common interest in mine water and mine drainage issues, though we arrive with different skills, backgrounds, and specialized expertise, in disciplines that range from science (e.g. chemistry, hydrogeology, microbiology, geophysics) to engineering (mostly mining and civil). Our Association has 600+ members, including pragmatic consultants and mining company employees, academic researchers (faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates), and government scientists and regulators. Mine water, as we understand it, comprises acid mine drainage, neutral mine drainage and alkaline mine drainage as well as its prevention, control, and treatment.
