||The Tioga River Demonstration Project in southeastern Tioga County, Pennsylvania, is essentially defined by an isolated pocket of coal that has been extensively deep and strip mined within the Pennsylvania Bituminous Coal Field. The Tioga River watershed is subjected to acid mine drainage from abandoned mines in the vicinity of the Borough of Blossburg and the Village of Morris Run. The proposed demonstration project is recommended: (1) to demonstrate effective techniques for mine drainage abatement, (2) to reduce a specific mine drainage problem, and (3) to restore portions of a mined area to their approximate original surface grade. Techniques to be demonstrated include: restoration of strip pits utilizing agricultural limestone and sewage sludge as soil conditioners, burial of acid-forming materials within strip mines that are to be restored, and reconstruction and lining of a stream channel.
