In this video, a biologist visits Lower Rock Creek in Pulaski County, Kentucky to show how acid mine drainage remediation has increased the stream’s pH from acidic levels almost to 7, which is neutral. Many fish species such as minnows, trout, and bass have returned to Rock Creek. However, the remediation has not completely reversed the damage from acid mine drainage, plus non-point-source pollution from nearby roads and other building sites continue to affect the stream's health and limit its wildlife population.
