2011 Nonpoint Source Monitoring Report for Acid Mine Drainage now available

Jen Bowman August 28, 2012

The 2011 Nonpoint Source Monitoring Report for Acid Mine Drainage is now complete and can be found at http://www.watersheddata.com/UserView_Report.aspx. This is the seventh report issued by the Voinovich School as part of the Nonpoint Source (NPS) Monitoring Project in partnership with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Mineral Resources Management. The project was developed to address the targets set forth for Abandoned Mine Drainage (AMD) in the State of Ohio's NPS Management Plan 2005-2010. AMD is one of the six NPS pollutants listed as a key issue to address to improve water quality in Ohio streams.

The Voinovich School's website, www.watersheddata.com, provides a repository of information relating to the AMD targets listed in the State's NPS Management Plan 2005-2010; entry forms for AMD project information; downloadable reports; and ArcIMS data entry systems where water quality and biology data can be viewed, entered, edited, mapped and downloaded for four watersheds: Raccoon Creek, Monday Creek, Sunday Creek and Huff Run.

Please contact Jennifer Bowman, Senior Environmental Project Manager, Ohio University Voinovich School at bowmanj2@ohio.edu or 740-597-3101 with any questions about the report or the project.
