A study was performed to document existing environmental constraints upon land and water resources in the Settler's Cabin Park and Pinkertons Run Watershed resulting from coal mining and mine drainage pollution. The findings show that mine drainage pollution has obviated beneficial use of the streams and that unreclaimed strip mines and mine subsidence has discouraged aesthetic appreciation and recreation facilities development. A mine drainage abatement and land reclamation plan was developed based upon technical water quality criteria, cost effectiveness, land use planning and minimization of adverse impact upon the terrestrial ecosystem of Settler's Cabin Park.
