Abstract

Abandoned mine drainage (AMD) is a significant problem in areas with a history of coal mining. Clean surface water infiltrates into abandoned underground mine systems and is contaminated via interaction with pyrite, yielding sulfuric acid. The acidified water subsequently discharges into rivers downstream. The Schuylkill River Watershed of central Pennsylvania contains economically important anthracite deposits which have been mined since the 1800s in the headwaters of the Schuylkill River.
