The Tioga River Demonstration Project in southeastern Tioga County, Pennsylvania, is essentially defined by an isolated pocket of coal that has been extensively deep and strip mined within the Pennsylvania Bituminous Coal Field. The Tioga River watershed is subjected to acid mine drainage from abandoned mines in the vicinity of the Borough of Blossburg and the Village of Morris Run. The project demonstrated effective techniques for mine drainage abatement, reduced a specific mine drainage problem, and restored portions of a strip mined area to their approximate original surface grades. Techniques demonstrated included: Restoration of strip pits utilizing agricultural limestone and wastewater sludge as soil conditioners; burial of acid-forming materials within strip mines that were restored; and reconstruction and lining of a stream channel. Effectiveness of these preventive measures and their costs were determined.
Study was conducted in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, Harrisburg, Pa. Grant no. S805784 (14010 HIN). Feb. 1979. Includes bibliographical references.
