This report discusses effectiveness of debris basins in controlling solids in water discharging from surface mine operations. Two sites in Eastern Kentucky were selected for study in areas where very little erosion-causing activity has occurred and where surface mining is to be initiated. Adjacent virgin watersheds were also selected for each study site to provide background data on water quality where man's activities have been very limited. Pertinent site information including flow and water quality data was gathered.
