2002 Proposal Rankings

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.


Preliminary rankings from the peer review process are shown in the table below. As previously advertised in the 2002 solicitation, 50% of the funds will be distributed to the following focus areas:

  1. Source control for prevention of metal-leaching and acid mine drainage.
  2. Techniques for treating low-flow, metal-laden/acid mine drainage in remote settings.
Title of Proposal
Focus Area
1. Linking Waterfowl Toxicity with Contaminant Speciation in Riparian Soils: A Remediation Demonstration Project in the Coeur d'Alene River Basin - Region X
Yes
2. Long Term Monitoring of a Permeable Treatment Wall at the Interstate Site, Wallace, Idaho - Region X
Yes
3. Demonstration of a Pulsed Limestone Bed Process for the Remediation of AMD from Metal Mines
No
4. Physical Solutions for Acid Mine Drainage at Remote Sites
Yes
5. Testing of Patented Electrochemical Cover at Placer Dome's Golden Sunlight Mine, Butte, MT
No
6. Thallium Removal from Mine Waste Waters
No
7. Remediation of Underground Mine Discharge Using a Combination of Technologies - Source Control and Passive Technologies
Yes
8. Microbial and Geochemical Responses in Acid Producing Mine Tailings to In-Situ Stimulation of Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
Yes
9. Cyanide Heap Biological Detoxification Phase II
No
10. Treatment of Low Flow Metal-Laden/Acid Mine Drainage in Remote Settings with Activated Carbon
Yes
11. Source Control by Combined Physical and Microbial Barrier to Prevent Groundwater Contamination from Mine Waste Piles
Yes
12. Continuation of Revegetation of Mining Waste Using Organic Amendments without Inorganic Fertilizer Demonstration Project
No
13. Evaluation of Mine Waste Leaching Through Dense Phase Paste Products
No

Further negotiations with the proposers are underway to better delineate schedules and costs. Due to additional budget problems, there is approximately $900.000 available this current fiscal year for funding new projects. If congress provides funding for this program next fiscal year, we anticipate approximately $2,000,000 to be available for new project starts.

There will not be an additional solicitation for proposals next year, therefore we will make selections for next year from this year's list.
