A leaf turns black in the acid mine drainage issued from the entrance to Majestic Mine in Athens County, Ohio. Majestic Mine is one of the main contributors of AMD to the Monday Creek watershed. A subsidence closure project undertaken by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the US Forest Service in cooperation with the Monday Creek Restoration Project reduced outflow from the mine to 1/5th of former levels.
