Longwall Mining Damage to Polen Run Near Ryerson Station State Park

The video above shows subsidence from the Bailey Mine’s longwall mining which has dewatered a section of Polen Run just outside Ryerson Station State Park. There is also footage of the great disruption caused by the company’s attempts to mitigate the damage.

Would you recreate in that stream? Do you think aquatic life can survive this damage?
