A more practical approach would be to require that surface-mined areas be restored in such a manner that the factors controlling ground water recharge are returned to condition that produces ground water recharge at rates that are not lower than those that existed before mining _ 17 a Water quality considerations also are very important. - 1 9 - (2) Ground water quantity shall be protected by handling earth materials and runoff in a manner that will restore the approximate pre-mining recharge capacity of the reclaimed area as a whole, excluding coal mine waste disposal areas and [excess spoil] fills, so as to allow the movement of water to the ground water system.".

One of the major effects of mining is its impact on ground and surface waters. This, along with other disturbances, make the ecosystem to meet with grevious consequences. The impact of mining on ground water may be considered under the fo11owing areas: a) Lowering of water table b) Subsidence.   1. Introduction. Highly mechanized mining processes are widely used in surface mining because they generally provide an efficient approach for achieving high production (Shrestha and Lal, ).However, high production is also associated with large volumes of waste production (Ramani, ).During surface mining, the excavated materials from depths of m are stripped off and . Hard-rock mining produces tailings, a similarly fine-grained material, which, like coal ash, contains constituents of concern that must be isolated from surface water and groundwater receptors. One increasingly common solution that Golder applies is dewatering tailings and then combining with binder (e.g., cement) if required, as well as other.

The watersheds studied include mined and reclaimed; mined and unreclaimed; and unmined, agricultural land uses, and are each Surface water, groundwater, and meteorologic data for the and water years were used to describe and compare hydrologic systems of the six watersheds and to identify hydrologic effects of mining and reclamation.

Surface coal mining in the northern Appalachian coalfields has a significant impact on the ground water hydrologic system. Regulations promulgated from the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of require prediction of the probable hydrologic consequences (PHC) of mining as part of the surface mining permit application.
