kris,as with this bdridge over a creek with acid mine drainage i have seen this same scenario in central Pa. where alot of mines that are no more are leaking sulfuric acid into streams.It's a shame what a business like mining did to the waterways in pa.

Notice the color of the water under this bridge. It is severely impacted by acid mine drainage.
