Chemical and biological sampling was conducted at three mine drainage treatment plants operating in Washington County, Pennsylvania. In addition to the parameters generally associated with mine drainage, ten additional parameters were included for analysis during three of the four sampling rounds. These were all metals and included manganese, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, nickel and zinc. These metals were included in a general attempt to observe the efficiency of a conventional mine drainage treatment plant for the removal or reduction of metals not commonly associated with mine drainage but often present in measurable quantities.
