Sulfur Cycling Monitoring Results for North Chickamauga Creek Constructed Wetlands (Sediment)

Metadata Updated: August 15, 2019

Historical mining activities on the Cumberland Plateau, located in central to eastern Tennessee, have dramatically impacted overall water quality in surface waters flowing east into the ridge and valley physiographic province. Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) and associated low pH conditions in surface waters greatly degrade water quality conditions. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Office of Surface Mining (OSM) designed and installed a series of constructed wetlands to mitigate AMD conditions at former mine locations in the 1990s. These mitigation wetlands were monitored to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of surface water remediation at each constructed facility. From 1995 - 1996 researchers from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga compiled a series of monitoring data sets targeted at the documenting the rate of sulfur reduction in wetland sediment. Using these measurements, estimates of overall wetland effectiveness could be made.
