The fire service worked through the night to assist with the pumping of toxic water from a disused mine near Truro.
Pumps are currently at full capacity at Wheal Jane. Levels are still rising, but at a slower rate than yesterday.
There are fears that rising levels could pollute the nearby river and Fal Estuary, a marine special area of conservation, although there has been no pollution so far.
