During the last sixty years extensive experimental research has been conducted in an attempt to establish methods of controlling the acid conditions resulting from coal mine operations.
It was the purpose of this research to determine the feasibility of reclaiming acid strip-mine lakes for use as potential fisheries management areas. To accomplish the objectives outlined above a two-phase program was initiated. The first phase involved the physical alteration of the drainage areas of the experimental lakes included in this study in an attempt to divert all visible signs of acid drainage to areas other than those incorporated into the drainage systems of the experimental lakes.
