Abstract The study involves a selected watershed in which surface mining and unsuccessful reclamation efforts in the early 1970s resulted in adverse environmental impacts. Work on the east Tennessee problem mine sought to correct reclamation deficiencies by applying land stabilization treatments and then to evaluate their effectiveness by measuring the degree of recovery of the affected terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Conditions documented during the mining and reclamation, and those following restorative treatments provide a measure of ecological recovery. Evaluations on environmental effects cover vegetation, soils, water quality, aquatic macroinvertebrates, fish, small mammals, birds, and sedimentation.
