Abstract
A study was conducted within the Elk Creek Watershed, West Virginia to determine the technical and economic feasibility of three acid mine drainage abatement techniques. Alkaline regarding and slurry trench construction were established as technically and economically viable abatement techniques at four of five potential demonstration project sites, while mine roof collapse was considered feasible at one location. Alkaline regrading--reworking existing alkaline spoil material--is a method for improving neutralizing capabilities and facilitating slurry trench installation. Demonstration of alkaline regrading, slurry trenching and mine roof collapse as viable abatement techniques will provide the technology for prolonging beneficial effects of current surface mining and facilitate elimination of acid discharge from abandoned mines.
