This demonstration project was devised to determine the feasibility of using abandoned coal strip mines for the disposal of solid wastes by sanitary landfilling. Two sites were used. Frostburg Site Number 1 served from the beginning of the project in the early part of 1967 and was terminated on October 31, 1971. Westernport Site Number 2 operated from the latter part of 1968 to October 1969, and served the two-fold purpose of studying the effect of different types of solid waste on acid mine water as well as fulfilling a regional concept of solid waste management.
