Old Forge Borehole offers intrigue and concern for state, local leaders, Scranton (Pa.) Times-Tribune, 8/28/12. This article describes what one observer called “the biggest, baddest source of mine drainage in the east”: a “borehole” in Old Forge, Pennsylvania, designed to release underground water from an old mining system that, if left unreleased, can cause surface flooding. The borehole works to help avoid flooding, but its discharge of some 60 million to 100 million gallons per day results in acidic drainage in the Lackawanna and Susquehanna rivers. The Susquehanna is a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.
