Dam & Mining Engineering & Permitting

KBJW provides Engineering Design and Field Services for projects involving Fresh Water Dams and Coal Impoundment Dams used to store the Slurry that is a by-product of washing coal before further processing. We also offers Mine Feasibility and Planning and Abandoned Mine Reclamation Design services.

KBJW has extensive experience with state and federal agencies including MSHA, Corps of Engineers, and multi-state regulatory agencies. We are dedicated to getting the correct details in planning and finding innovative approaches to difficult problems. We are a full service provider from conception of a mine, until the day it closes and reclamation of the site begins.

KBJW has provided services to some of the largest Coal Companies in the world. We have worked for major Electricity Producers. Our team is a perfect partner for most Coal and Aggregate Companies as well as Coal Fired Power Plants.
