Abstract Ten small watersheds in east Tennessee were studied during a four year period from 1975-1979 in order to provide background data for the development and demonstration of regional mathematical models for predicting the impacts of coal surface mining on the aquatic environment. Analysis of the geological data from watershed core samples revealed that there was sufficient alkalinity and neutralization potential within the plateau rock strata to neutralize acidity produced from surface mining. Streams in six contour-mined areas were sampled for benthos using Surber, drift, artificial substrate, and kick nets. Functional, taxonomic, species composition, and number differences were attributed to mining activities.
