Title: Engineering approach to mine reclamation with biosolids, part II
Author: Renken, Karin

Series/Report no. British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium 1998
Abstract: This paper outlines the six step engineering approach to mine reclamation with biosolids: 1) site assessment, 2) regulatory constraints identification, 3) reclamation goal definition, 4) biosolids assessment, 5) reclamation plan design, and 6) seed bed preparation and biosolids application, but excludes detailed application rate calculations, best management practices, and monitoring guidelines which were already summarized in "Engineering Approach to Mine Reclamation with Biosolids" (Renken, 1997). This and the abovementioned paper are intended to be a preview of the guidance document for land reclamation for the upcoming British Columbia "Selected Organic Matter Recycling Regulation" (Regulation) which will supersede the 1983 "Guidelines for the Disposal of Domestic Sewage Under the Waste Management Act". '"Land Reclamation' means using Class A or Class B biosolids to rehabilitate the productivity or capability of mining, forest, or agricultural land that has been subjected to processes which have caused impairment of use or productivity, and is managed according to the requirements of the Agricultural Land Commission, Forest Practices Code or a Mine Reclamation Plan."
