ABSTRACT
The elevated water table concept is a potentially effective means of reducing acid mine drainage from reactive tailings
impoundments. The effectiveness of the technique, based on a controlled phreatic surface position, depends on many factors
including the capillary retention properties of the waste material, climatic conditions, water balance of the impoundment, as
