Project Details
  • Aylesworth Creek Oxic Limestone Drain
    Passive Treatment System
    Lackawanna River
    Ayelsworth Creek

    The system is referred to as an "Oxic" Limestone Drain only because it is not being captured at the source, but from a stream where oxygen is present in the water (similar to the Oneida 1 system in Schuylkill County). The system contains 25,000 cu. ft. (1,260 tons) of limestone in a 25 ft. wide by 260 ft. long by 5 ft. deep lined trench. The system replaces a damaged rotating limestone drum, but utilizes the existing intake.
    Funding for project was provided by Lackawanna Watershed 2000 a cooperative effort by Lackawanna county and EPA Region 3. The US ACOE Baltimore District are the landowners and the boroughs of Archbald and Jermyn provided property leases.
