Description: This project is known by several names including Jamison Mine Borehole, Novasel RAMP, and Wolford Run Borehole. A passive system was installed in 1994 by the Westmoreland County Conservation District and Soil Conservation Service to treat a discharge from the Jamison Mine Borehole located in Westmoreland County, PA. The project funded by the Rural Abandoned Mine Program also included reclaiming about 30 acres of coal refuse material. The AMD emanates at a borehole which drains two Upper Freeport coal mines. The Jamison Mine is flooded while the Truxall Mine is believed to be unflooded. The original treatment system consisted of an Anoxic Limestone Drain followed by 3 Settling Ponds.
