The purpose of this report is to provide background information to be used in the development of a program to eliminate or reduce the effects of mine drainage pollution on the quality of the streams in the Susquehanna River, Delaware River, and Potomac River Drainage Basins. The report covers both the anthracite and bituminous coal mining areas in these Basins. The report does the following: Describe the chemical and physical processes involved in the formation and occurrence of mine drainage pollution; Identify and characterize the watersheds contributing mine drainage; Relate mine drainage contributions of the tributaries to the main stem of the receiving stream; Identify and estimate the extent of areas disturbed by mining operations; Suggest measures for control; and estimate costs.
