Both federal and state regulations require mining companies to develop specific plans for protecting the hydrological balance of a watershed, controlling sediment production, and diverting surface flows. Plan preparation requires predicting runoff volume, peak rate, and total hydrograph for design rainfall events. There is currently a very limited scientific basis for simulating the hydrological impact of surface mining activities. The purpose of this report is to present a scientifically (physically) based deterministic model to assess the hydrological impact of surface mined watersheds.
