The plot studies were carried out at Karthaus and Klingerstown to verify the accuracy of the erosion pin method of soil loss evaluation compared to soil loss measured in runoff samples. Subsequently, field studies at Kylertown and Kittaning were used to apply these methods. Kylertown site showed no concentrated areas of erosion for the 4 month study period. However, over the 12 year existence of this site, observable rills and gullies have accounted for large soil losses. When erosion pins are used with the surface contouring program areas of potential concentrated soil loss can be readily located on reclaimed strip mines. For best results it is recommended that the erosion pins be initially placed in a grid network on slope of interest.
