Three Fork Creek Restoration

Looking for more effective means of treating AMD and achieving an established goal of full stream restoration to a fishery quality, the WV AML program elected to move in a new direction and utilize in-stream active treatment.  Instead of treating one source with passive treatment, WV AML would treat an entire watershed using in-stream dosers placed on tributaries impacted by AMD. A pilot project known as Three Forks Watershed Restoration was initiated with the construction of four (4) dosers in the spring of 2011.
