Description: The mine drainage from the Melcroft #3 coal mine and refuse pile enters the system at the collection pond and is then slowly transported to one of the two vertical flow ponds. From there the water goes into the settling pond. After the settlin pong the discharge is furher treated as it passes through two aerobic wetlands before going through its final treatment phase in the managnese removal bed. It is then dishcarged into Champion Creek. MWA estimates $23,000 annual cost to monitor and maintain.
