The purpose of the project was to prepare plans and specifications which, when executed by a contractor, will abate the acid mine drainage presently polluting Cherry Creek in western Maryland. The abatement of this pollution will allow Cherry Creek to support a fisheries program, and will improve the quality of the water in Deep Creek Lake. The study was performed in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency as part of an effort to deal with elimination and control of mine drainage. Benefits other than water quality improvement include the aesthetic benefits from strip mine reclamation since Cherry Creek is adjacent to the large Deep Creek Lake recreation area. The abatement measures will eliminate 95% of the net acid load in the Creek. The total construction project includes two strip mine reclamation sites in the Casselman River watershed.
