About The Role
At the Coal Authority the Environment Department is responsible for addressing the issues of water pollution from abandoned coal and metal mines across Britain by developing new schemes and supporting the operation of over 75 existing mine water treatment schemes. There are three main delivery programmes covering sites spread across the former coal and metal mining areas in England, Wales and Scotland
These are key positions within the Environment Department Projects Team, assisting and leading on the project management of often complex, strategically important projects, which assess, develop and implement intervention strategies (including mine water remediation schemes) to address issues resultant from legacy mining activities.
Projects generally include a variety of remedial interventions, not least surface water and spoil heap management and both passive and active mine water treatment schemes and we actively consider and trial novel and emerging technologies, encountering a wide range of environmental sensitivities and constraints at all sites, with most of the sites having some designated areas / features either close to or on-site and most typically located in rural areas and sitting within or close to protected areas.
