Description: This project addresses the RD0-D1 discharge, which was identified as being the second highest contributor of iron, manganese, and acidity to the 28-square mile Aultmans Run Watershed. The restoration strategy involved the removal of over 70,000 tons of refuse, which was taken to Seward Generating Station. The remaining non-fuel grade (NFG) refuse was mixed with Mineral CSA, generously donated by Harsco Minerals, Sarver, PA. Within the footprint of the original refuse pile a 0.75-acre wetland and 0.60-acre open water habitat was constructed to help ameliorate any lingering degraded seepage from the NFG refuse.
