Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines hopes that by identifying the biological and chemical processes that occur naturally in wetlands, we will eventually be able to design wetlands that clean up acid mine drainage more efficiently. Although this research is a slow process, the promise of clean water, increased wildlife habitat, and lower water treatment costs make all the effort well worth it.
