Abstract:
During recent mining of the Durham coalfield, an extensive inland de-watering programme was needed to prevent down-dip flow towards the deep coastal collieries (Easington, Murton, Dawdon, Seaham, Vane Tempest, Wearmouth and Westoe). In the late 1980s, for example, 67 Mld-1 was pumped at the coast and 109 Mld-1 from shafts at abandoned inland collieries (Harrison et al., 1989). Inland pumping has continued, despite final closure of all deep mines, to prevent acid groundwater rebound and the surface discharges which are expected to follow (Younger, 1993).
