About the Edition

The chemical composition of ground water associated with coal was analyzed from samples of uncontaminated water taken at underground coal mines in Illinois and Indiana. Total dissolved mineral content and chloride concentration increased with depth. All ground water samples had neutral or slightly alkaline pHs.

Ground water was monitored from October to April and surface water was monitored from October to September in the square-mile basin of Plum Creek Tributary in Randolph County, Illinois, to determine effects of surface mining for coal. During the study period, the basin was being surfaced mined. The mine pit advanced about feet into the basin every month, reducing.

  Across the sites, 14 different coal ash contaminants are in the groundwater. Coal ash cleanup is an important challenge because drinking contaminated groundwater can have serious health effects. Illinois total daily groundwater withdrawals were million gallons as of a statistic from the United States Geological : Meredith Katz. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

2. Methods. The coal seams in several coal mines in southwestern Indiana were described megascopically, and bench samples from freshly exposed coal were collected for moisture, sulfur, ash, heating value, and trace element analysis following ASTM procedures ().For all samples, in addition to the raw coal, float fractions at g/cm 3 were obtained and by:   Of US power plants that monitor groundwater, report unsafe levels of at least one pollutant derived from coal ash. Almost every coal-fired power plant in the US is contaminating groundwater with unsafe levels of toxic pollution, according to the first comprehensive analysis of the consequences of coal ash waste disposal.

In the few studies con­ ducted on the effects of coal refuse disposal on ground­ water quality, significant impacts have been observed. COAL RESOURCES OF ILLINOIS* M, E. Hopkins and Jack A. Simon COAL RESERVES IN ILLINOIS Illinois IS blessed with abundant coal, the fuel that at present represents the naticnqs best hope of becoming more self-sufficient in energy production in the f-~.ture.

Most aquifers in the northern two-thirds of Indiana are composed of glacial deposits containing groundwater. These glacial aquifers exist where sand and gravel bodies are present within clay-rich glacial till (sediment deposited by ice) or in alluvial, coastal, and glacial outwash deposits.

Usually the coals are overlain by marine strata, most commonly by marine black fissile shale or limestone. The sulfur content of the coal below such strata normally ranges from 3 to 5%. In certain areas, however, nonmarine, silty gray shale units intervene between the coal and the overlying black shales and limestones.

The widespread Springfield coal of the Petersburg Formation is Indiana's most important economic coal (Eggert and Wier, ). It is thickest near three contemporaneous channels in southwestern Indiana, the Galatia, Leslie Cemetery, and Terre Haute Channels, where it may reach thicknesses of 13 ft (4 m) in places (Eggert and Wier, ).

Coal has been one of most valuable natural resources since the s when the Hopi Indians used it for the first time. European settlers began to use coal in the late s and as immigration to the US grew and energy demand increased, coal production quickly climbed from million tons in.

The five coal beds sampled from the Lower Pennsylvanian span the medium-volatile bituminous coal rank class.
