AMDTreat is a free computer application for estimating abatement costs for pollutional mine drainage, commonly referred to as Acid Mine Drainage or AMD*. AMDTreat can assist a user in estimating costs to abate water pollution using a variety of passive and chemical treatment types; including, vertical flow ponds, anoxic limestone drains, anaerobic wetlands, aerobic wetlands, manganese removal beds, oxic limestone channels, caustic soda, hydrated lime, pebble quicklime, ammonia and soda ash treatment systems. The AMD abatement cost model considers over 400 variables in estimating costs for treatment facility construction, excavation, revegetation, piping, road construction, land acquisition, system maintenance, labor, water sampling, design, surveying, pumping, sludge removal, chemical consumption, clearing and grubbing, mechanical aeration, and ditching.
