Reclamation projects may vary from site to site. Oftentimes, these programs require a custom design, while others require extensive dirt work to restore original contours. Soil amendments and prescribed seeding are also options that can be used to restore habitat to its native condition.
What is Reclamation?
Reclamation is the process of getting something useful from waste. This means that although something may be thought of as waste, it can be converted into something useful. One example of reclamation is when oil solids are recycled. Another example may be growing trees on the land that was previously heavily logged.
Purpose of Reclamation
The main purpose of reclamation is in the construction and maintenance of dams, canals, and pumping systems. They are used to bring irrigation water to arid, semiarid, or sub-humid lands.
Downsides of Reclamation
The only downside to land reclamation is that it can be expensive. This is because reclaimed soil is typically weak and compressible. It takes many years to stabilize. Despite this, it can be very effective for the environment and saving resources.
How Does Reclamation Help the Environment?
Essentially, reclamation is restoring the land. When you use reclamation services you allow the land to thrive. This also allows it to remain conducive to fertile soil and other areas of growth. By restoring the balance in the land, the ecosystem will thrive again.
Mineral extraction and reclamation processes also ensure the return of sustainable ecosystems to former degraded land. By revegetating mine spoils by tree cover, it can stabilize an ecosystem for a long time. This is due to the ameliorative effects on soil quality. It cannot only improve based on commercial values but also aesthetics.
Land Reclamation for Oil and Gas
When it comes to land reclamation in oil and gas, the land is reverted to be used for production back to its natural state. The land will then be restored to be a functional equivalent of what it was before development took place.
Typically, when energy projects are finished, the land is abandoned. This is when the reclamation work can begin. To return the land to a functionally equivalent state before development, reclamation begins.
