Abstract
A mine dewatering strategy utilizing fracture sited wells drilled from the surface above a historically wet underground coal mine in Preston County, West Virginia, successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of such a strategy to reduce mine water inflows and increase mine productivity through improved working conditions. The strategy has the potential to be cost effective by greatly reducing the total volume of water likely to enter the mine workings and require costly handling and treatment while minimizing the impact on shallower domestic water supplies. This report outlines five site-independent prerequisites for a cost-effective mine dewatering approach.
