Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
A preliminary assessment survey, preparatory to a comprehensive ERDA sponsored watershed study, was conducted in the vicinity of Sheridan, Wyoming on the Tongue River and its major tributaries during the summer of 1975 to determine the extent and magnitude of aquatic environmental impacts induced by strip mining of coal at one major mine in the western Powder River Basin of Wyoming. Results of detailed physical and chemical analysis of mine discharge and ambient water quality of receiving streams were not conclusive, but suggest that water quality impacts of present mining activities in the area examinee' are small when compared to other apparent land use impacts observed upstream of the mine.
