The Kentucky Department for Natural Resources (DNR) has posted water quality data taken from in-stream sampling sites throughout the Kentucky coalfields. The data represents analyses of water samples taken quarterly from July 2010 through June 2012. Samples were taken from 53 sites in the eastern coalfield and 11 sites in the western coalfield during the time period.
The project was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining, in the amount of $200,000.
The table below lists information for each sample site and a link to its data sheet containing the measurements of concentration for tested analytes. A null value for a component indicates that the concentration is below the detection limits of the laboratory.
