Research was conducted to evaluate methods for the biological treatment of acid mine drainage (AMD). Two general approaches were evaluated. The first evaluated treatment of impounded AMD through the addition of a mixed microbial community and carbon sources appropriate for their maintenance. This approach was designed to promote sulfate reduction. To provide adequate treatment of AMD, a second effort was directed to evaluation of a biologically based unit process for AMD treatment.
