Effects Of Surface Mining On Ground Water Quality

Effects of Surface Mining on Ground Water Quality

Effects of Surface Mining on Ground Water Quality by Henry Rauch Nature of Ground‐water pollution by surface mining Ground water is becoming a major concern with respect to surface mining of coal in both West Virginia and the nation's other coal fields. Two major concerns are ground‐water quality and ground‐water quantity, but only the quality aspects are addressed

Long-term effects of surface coal mining on

Two small watersheds in eastern Ohio that were surface mined for coal and reclaimed were studied during 1986-89. Water-level and water-quality data were compared with similar data collected during previous investigations conducted during 1976-83 to determine long-term effects of surface mining on the hydrologic system. Before mining, the watersheds were

Mining and Water Quality - USGS

The acid runoff further dissolves heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury into groundwater or surface water. The rate and degree by which acid-mine drainage proceeds can be increased by the action of certain bacteria. Acidic, metal-laden drainage from abandoned coal mines can have substantial effects on aquatic resources.

Effects of Underground Coal Mining on Ground

Besides the hazardous effects of depressions at the surface, subsidence can alter the hydro- logic system in the following ways: (l) increased secondary permeability at the surface will result in increased infiltration of precipitation and decreased overland runoff; (2) travel time of ground-water flow from the surface to points of discharge will be greatly decreased; (3) water levels will fluctuate over a larger

16-10-2019  Salt is spread on roads to melt ice, and, with salt being so soluble in water, excess sodium and chloride is easily transported into the subsurface groundwater. The most common water-quality problem in rural water supplies is bacterial contamination from septic tanks, which are often used in rural areas that don't have a sewage-treatment system.

Large natural variations in water quality may, therefore, be observed even where only a single watercourse is involved. Human intervention also has significant effects on water quality. Some of these effects are the result of hydrological changes, such as the building of dams, draining of wetlands and diversion of flow.
