USEPA and National Groundwater Association Remediation of Abandoned Mine Lands Conference. Denver, CO. October , (Invited). Soil compaction by cattle hooves and cultivation practices can destroy the soil structure and restrict the movement of air, water and roots through the soil. When looking at eco-efficiency opportunities it is always better to reduce or eliminate the cause of the impact. Eldridge () suggests a number of good farming practices to prevent or fix soil compaction.

Two small watersheds in eastern Ohio that have been surface mined and reclaimed were studied during ‐ The water‐level and water‐quality data collected were compared with premining (, ‐80) and postmining (‐83, ‐84) data collected during previous investigations.

The scientific literature is deficient in studies that measure N 2 O emissions, NO 3 leaching, and crop performance across multiple sources of nitrogen fertilizer and changes in field practices. However, there are tools and strategies available to consultants and producers to improve nitrogen use.

Seven watersheds - three in western Illinois (Fulton County), two in southwestern Illinois (St. Clair County), and two in southern Illinois (Williamson County) - were selected to assess the effect of surface mining on the quality and. The impact of surface mining of Texas lignites on surface- and ground-water systems has been investigated.

Surface-water and/or hydrogeologic analyses were conducted at two active and three proposed mines in the Texas lignite belt. Field studies supplemented by laboratory studies measured the.

This is performed by replacing the overburden and then the topsoil using large earthmovers, followed by vegetation planting or reseeding. In surface mined environments, infiltration-excess overland flow that results from severe compaction and the removal of soils is thought to be the dominant mechanism of runoff and the rapid.

Strip-mined land (SML) disturbed by coal mining is a non-crop land resource that can be utilized to cultivate high-yielding energy crops such as miscanthus for bioenergy applications.

However, the biomass yield potential, annual availability, and environmental impacts of growing energy crops in SML are less understood. In this study, we estimated the yield potential of miscanthus (Miscanthus Cited by: 4. Preliminary evaluation of a sediment pond draining a surface mined watershed.
