The Boggs Road Mine Drainage Treatment Project was the first project undertaken by the Montour Run Watershed Association in Allegheny County.

The project reduces the iron content of the mine discharge from over 80 parts per million down to just 1 or 2 ppm.

Stan Sattinger, past president of the Montour Run Watershed Association, and John Davidson, a former DEP mine inspector and now a volunteer, talk about how the project was developed and how it functions.

Adam Kropf, the son of the landowner, tells how the project has improved their quality of life and the local fishing.
