At Bowden, West Virginia, a fish kill occurred in a hatchery in the spring of 1966, reportedly from acid mine drainage flushing out of several abandoned underground coal mines. The West Virginia Department of Mines air sealed several small underground mines in the Taylor Run, Red Run, and Fishing Hawk mining areas by constructing cement block-type air and dry seals at the portals. Since November 1967 seasonal samples have been collected at these seals and analyzed. A report is made on the findings.
