Wheeling Field Station, Ohio Basin Region, personnel recommended a twofold effort to identify specific water pollution problems and to provide a basis for an abatement program. The recommendations were: (1) establishment of a detailed mine drainage source investigation to locate and quantify all coal mine drainage discharges; and (2) establishment of a county-wide network of stream water quality sampling stations for long-term monitoring. The gross pollution of Raccoon Creek and many of its tributaries was found due to coal mine drainage. Actions are recommended as a sequential approach for an abatement program, including making a priority listing, feasibility studies, water quality characterization, engineering plans, and construction.
