The Horeseshoe Bend Water Treatment Plant, seen here in 2009, was constructed in 2002-2003 to fulfill the EPA Record of Decision, which requires that surface water flowing into the Berkeley Pit be captured and either used in the mining process or treated. Currently the plant is used to capture and treat surface water that would otherwise flow into the Pit. Treated water is then used in Montana Resources mining operations. Photo by Justin Ringsak.
