Water Management

At Source we are committed to protecting natural water resources and reducing our use of freshwater.

  • Since 2018, the water recycling program has recycled over 726 million gallons of water

Land Reclamation

Land reclamation is a key activity Source completes at our Production operations. In an effort to actively manage our forested land, reclamation is conducted in stages that correlate with the different phases of the mining of our sand formations. Our approach not only promotes a healthy ecosystem it also eliminates large-scale reclamation operations in the future.
