A 43-acre watershed in Muskingum County, Ohio, was studied to determine the hydrologic consequences of strip mining for coal. A quantitative description of the effects on the groundwater flow components of the hydrologic system has been obtained using digital models. Mining has destroyed the top aquifer, and has replaced the bedrock by spoil material.-from Authors
