JMC Engineering (JMC) offers a wide range of Environmental services including but not limited to the following:


Air Pollution Control Technology


Water Quality & Treatment


Waste Management & Disposal


Reclamations of Abandoned Mine Land


JMC investigates incidents of discharges of coal mine gas and water associated with coal and metalliferous mining activities and advises on their subsequent capture and treatment.


JMC has a thorough knowledge of mine workings across much of the United Kingdom. Upon closure of a mine, JMC has undertaken large and small scale studies leading to a design to eliminate risks to the general public.

This includes analysis of risk factors from the rising water table pressurising mine gas. Identifying the likely path the gas may take to the surface and the impact on the environment.


In the eventuality of encountering water discharging or gas emissions, JMC is able to design and manage to completion the necessary treatment schemes. This would include the appropriate specification, method statements, risk assessments and financial controls.


JMC is currently conducting many studies with local authorities in respect of discharging water from closed colliery sites throughout the UK.

JMC is experienced in the design, installation and management of sites to deal with discharge of mine water, which have an impact on the local environment. In the design and implementation of treatment strategies for mine adits, facilities have been incorporated which are sympathetic to the Local wildlife including bats and badgers.

JMC’s objectives with regard to contaminated land are in line with current government requirements, namely:


To identify and remove unacceptable risks to human health and the environment


To seek to bring damaged land back into beneficial use


To seek to ensure that the cost burdens faced by individuals, companies and society as a whole is proportionate, manageable and economically viable


JMC works with local authorities in providing services which will enable these objectives to be achieved. These services include:


Inspect and identify contaminated land


Establish responsibility for remediation work


Establish costs associated with remediation work


Carry out Risk Assessment basically but not limited to local authority guidelines


Supervision of work associated with remediation


Establish public register of all sites deemed to be contaminated land


JMC has considerable experience in the management and restoration of colliery spoil heaps. Statutory inspections and reports on active, closed and disused spoil heaps can be undertaken. Where serious problems exist specialist technical assistance is available to analyse problems and produce solutions.


Ensuring tips remain stable has been an important part of JMC engineers’ work for many years.

Design and installation of equipment to provide monitoring and collection of data from remote sites. Solar panels are utilised to provide power to enable data to be transmitted to control centers.


Monitoring water pressure in the body of the tip by means of piezometers on high risk slopes is regularly performed and the results analysed.

Remedial works, which may include repairs to existing adits or establishing new drainage regimes, are specified and managed as required.
