NTIS: PB/81-103186 :116 pages
The specific objective of this 3-year study is to investigate the means of reestablishing nonpolluted hydrologic systems in areas where surface mining directly impacts shallow ground water resources. The research area chosen for the study is located near Colstrip, Montana, at a new mine site where chemical analysis of core samples from the overburden suggested that excessive concentrations of several elements would be encountered during the mining process. The report discusses local vegetation, soils, and regional geology and hydrology.
