USEPA and National Groundwater Association Remediation of Abandoned Mine Lands Conference. Denver, CO. October , (Invited). Soil compaction by cattle hooves and cultivation practices can destroy the soil structure and restrict the movement of air, water and roots through the soil. When looking at eco-efficiency opportunities it is always better to reduce or eliminate the cause of the impact. Eldridge () suggests a number of good farming practices to prevent or fix soil compaction. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Two small watersheds in eastern Ohio that have been surface mined and reclaimed were studied during ‐ The water‐level and water‐quality data collected were compared with premining (, ‐80) and postmining (‐83, ‐84) data collected during previous investigations.

The scientific literature is deficient in studies that measure N 2 O emissions, NO 3 leaching, and crop performance across multiple sources of nitrogen fertilizer and changes in field practices. However, there are tools and strategies available to consultants and producers to improve nitrogen use. Introduction. Chapter 3 of this book outlines the various types of flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) materials generated at power plants. In general, postcombustion desulfurization includes wet processes, which generate stabilized sulfite FGD (CaSO 3) or the sulfate (CaSO 4) FGD gypsum, and dry processes, which generate spray dryer (SD), duct injection (DI), or circulating fluidized bed (CFB Cited by: 1.

fulness. Standardized surface water quality data collection methods do not exist for ephemeral streams, which comprise the majority of streams in the Western mining regions. Because such streams flow only in response to runoff events, their infrequent and unpredictable flows will con-tinue to limit the availability of data. As a result,File Size: 12MB. Examples of fragile lands include valuable habitats for fish or wildlife, critical habitats for endangered or threatened species of animals or plants, uncommon geologic formations, National Natural Landmark sites, areas where mining may cause flooding, environmental corridors containing a concentration of ecologic and esthetic features, areas. Within the guidelines and regulatory procedures set by this law, the industry was pinned for the reclamation of surface-mined lands, which has led to major changes in mining practices and reclamation techniques. By this way, many surface-mined lands have been successfully by: The provisions of this Act do not apply to undertakings pursuant to the Illinois Oil and Gas Act, the Surface-Mined Land Conservation and Reclamation Act and the Surface Coal Mining Land Conservation and Reclamation Act.

Runoff and water-quality characteristics of surface-mined lands in Illinois Technical Report Brabets, T.P. Seven watersheds - three in western Illinois (Fulton County), two in southwestern Illinois (St.

The impact of surface mining of Texas lignites on surface- and ground-water systems has been investigated. Surface-water and/or hydrogeologic analyses were conducted at two active and three proposed mines in the Texas lignite belt.

Coupe, Jo A. Macy. The Surface Mine Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of [U.S. Congress, ] requires mine operators to return surface mined sites to the approximate premining contours and to acceptable LULC. This is performed by replacing the overburden and then the topsoil using large earthmovers, followed by vegetation planting or reseeding.
In surface mined environments, infiltration-excess overland flow that results from severe compaction and the removal of soils is thought to be the dominant mechanism of runoff and the rapid. This study was initiated to characterize the incidence of P. cinnamomi on surface mined lands in eastern Kentucky, USA, representing a range of time since reclamation (10, 12, 15, and 20 years.

Strip-mined land (SML) disturbed by coal mining is a non-crop land resource that can be utilized to cultivate high-yielding energy crops such as miscanthus for bioenergy applications. However, the biomass yield potential, annual availability, and environmental impacts of growing energy crops in SML are less understood.
In this study, we estimated the yield potential of miscanthus (Miscanthus Cited by: 4. Preliminary evaluation of a sediment pond draining a surface mined watershed. Proceedings of the Symposium on Surface Mining Hydrology, Sedimentology, and Reclamation.
