[image] A photo of hazardous waste.

The ECAP program is exploring technologies related to hazardous materials on National Forest System lands. Our work has focused on technologies to remediate acid mine drainage and methods for treating sites in remote areas. In Fiscal Year 2000 we started to look at identifying the features at mine sites that affect hydrological controls of groundwater, based on existing research.
