Abstract
Watershed J11 in Jefferson County, Ohio, was instrumented in 1977 as one of three watersheds established for the purpose of investigating surface mining and reclamation effects on local hydrology, sediment discharge, and sediment and water quality. Each watershed was less than 50 acres in size, and was in a different geologic setting within southeastern Ohio. Surface runoff and ground water levels were monitored. Samples were taken for sediment determination and chemical analysis prior to mining. Monitoring and sampling continued throughout the period of watershed disturbance caused by mining and reclamation activities that began in May 1980. A pseudo- postreclamation period followed the initial cessation of human- machine activity on the watershed. A second reclamation effort occurred in the fall of 1981. A true final postreclamation period was not monitored at this site because the erosion control practice failed after each reclamation.
