The aim of this paper was to investigate the quality of the liquid phase (water) from the red mud disposal site of the Aluminium Plant in Podgorica. Based on theoretical knowledge and experimental results, the water from the red mud disposal site was refined, so that it could sluice in the recipient (Morača River). Refining of the water achieved the following: 1) reduction of environment pollution and 2) reduction of natural water consumption, which contributed to the preservation of a major environmental resource. The technological treatment of water from the disposal site was based on the selection of the optimal reagent for neutralization, separation of the solid products from that process and sluicing of the treated water into the recipient. The results obtained will be useful in the protection of potable well-water located in vicinity, south of the Aluminium Plant in Podgorica.
