Abstract Steel slag leach beds are a popular choice for acid mine drainage treatment in southeastern Ohio. Large amounts of alkalinity leached from the surface of steel slag, a by-product of steel manufacturing, have been added to acid mine drainage-affected streams to neutralize pH and precipitate metals. Results from steel slag leach beds are promising, but alkalinity production has decreased significantly over time in all beds. To determine the cause of the decrease, the effluent flow and… CONTINUE READING
