Average stream flow at this point was 12,098 gpm. The stream is net acid at this point with the following loading values: 2296 lbs/day of acid, 61 lbs/day of iron, 390 lbs/day of manganese, and 202 lbs/day of aluminum. The average pH at this point was 4.7. Data was also collected for this point in association with the Shale Hill Coal Company “Montgomery” surface mining operation (17850106, MP 12)."

MON-73 A No No

"This is a sample of the combined flow of the two branches of a very small unnamed tributary (Dog Trib) to Montgomery Creek. One branch is fed by surface
runoff while the other is fed by a discharge from past surface mining operations (MON 73). This tributary is net acid at this point. Average flow is 40 gpm, and the average pH was 4.7. This tributary contributes 7 lbs/day of acidity and <1 lb/day each of iron, manganese, and aluminum to Montgomery Creek."

MON-73 B No No

"This is a sample of the unnamed tributary (Dog Trib) at the mouth before it enters Montgomery Creek but after it passes through a pond and receives an additional discharge. This tributary is net acid at this point. Average flow is 23 gpm, and the average pH was 4.8. At this point, right before entry to Montgomery Creek, this tributary contributes 4.8 lbs/day acidity and <1 lb/day each of iron, manganese and aluminum to the main stem."

MON-75 No No

"This is a sample that was taken near the mouth of the unnamed tributary (Dog Trib) to Montgomery Creek. It comes from a pipe that crosses under the driveway to a garage and then enters directly into Montgomery Creek. The origin of the water is unknown. This discharge is net alkaline. Average flow is 20 gpm, with an average pH of 5.8. This discharge contributes 1 lb/day of acidity and <1 lb/day each of iron, manganese, and aluminum to Montgomery Creek.

MON-77 No No

"This is a sample of a very small spring that flows to Montgomery Creek after crossing under 104th Cavalry Road (T-507). This spring is net alkaline and contributes a small amount of buffering capacity to Montgomery Creek. Average flow is 27 gpm, and the average pH is 6.8. This tributary contributes less than 1 lb/day of iron, manganese, and aluminum to the main stem of Montgomery Creek."

MON-77A No No

"This is a sample of a very small spring that flows to Montgomery Creek, downstream and on the same side as MON 77. This spring is net alkaline and contributes a small amount of buffering capacity to Montgomery Creek. Average flow is only 5 gpm, and the average pH was 6.2. This tributary contributes less than one lb/day of iron, manganese, and aluminum to the main stem of Montgomery Creek."
