Purpose of guide
This website is intended to familiarize citizens and grassroots groups with the history and chemistry of abandoned mine drainage (AMD) and to provide the information needed to attack the problem creek by creek, river by river, until the waters of Pennsylvania once again run clean.
The website provides an overview of the process of cleaning-up AMD and the role that citizens and grassroots groups can play in that process. Additionally, the website provides links to other websites having valuable information, making it an efficient guide to web-based content.
This is not a technical or regulatory document: it is a guide for citizens who want to join with public agencies, universities, businesses, industry and other watershed stakeholders, to do something about AMD in their watersheds.
