Summary

This Data Release is a compilation of existing water-quality data associated with groundwater resources originating from abandoned underground coal mines in West Virginia. Data were compiled from multiple sources for the purpose of understanding the suitability of groundwater from abandoned underground coal mines for public supply, industrial, agricultural, and other uses. This compilation includes data collected for multiple individual studies conducted from July 13, 1973 through September 7, 2016. Analytical methods varied by the time period of data collection and requirements of the independent studies. This project identified 770 water quality samples from 294 sites that could be attributed to abandoned underground coal mine aquifers [...]

Purpose

This compilation of statewide water-quality data from abandoned underground coal mine aquifers is part of an initial effort to promote effective use of this valuable water resource. There are 2 associated child items included on this page 1) a site information table with associated shapefile and metadata.XML, and 2) a data table with sample information and associated metadata.XML.This project focused on obtaining data for abandoned underground-coal-mine aquifers throughout West Virginia and compiling the existing water-quality data for use as a reconnaissance tool in development of underground coal mines for public supply, industrial and agricultural use.
