About: Abandoned Jeddo Mine Tunnel spews toxic water near Hazleton and Drums, Pa

Is the source shown in the first video actually in Jeddo ?
They used to take boat in every so often to check tunnel starts out in Hazleton runs under ground from old 40 shaft area over 1600 downfeet many years ago They tryed to pull water to treat it to drink didnt pan out.
How did they reduce the gpm rate?
The water is beautiful too bad it's toxic
That milky look is from the aluminum and magnesium falling out of the water. Iron and manganese are also present. That will kill every animal in the stream. Then the acid that Wiki says is 45 tons a day, average pH of the water is 4.3. It's a terrible destructive force.
Can you give me directions to that tunnel
Put your cell phone down and do something about the situation if concerned. Use your non-existent muscles and brain matter to make a difference. OMG grow up
Years ago in college I would have been all over this video, sharing it, telling others how bad it is. Today, I realize all of that is crap. Personally I wish you'd have focused more on the fact it was reduced by some 60,000 g/min and what is being proposed to reduce it even more, or perhaps ways to reduce the toxicity of it. Today's environmentalists are all about putting blame on one group and going look at how bad things are then patting themselves on the back for 'doing' something. Put your boots on and kick science for fixing their problem.
Music so inspirational. Ya shoulda took a swim guy

How are they allowed to do that? They should be forced to clean it up.
a good blast of dynamite would fix it
What is name music ?
what toxic substances are in the water? Is it lead?
How hard is it to get to the mine tunnel without brushing against sticker bushes?
jump in, one less
I'm not sure why people are getting so mad about this video. First of all, it's fascinating (great job), and second, mine water is highly toxic in many ways. That doesn't mean you die by standing by it, but you shouldn't drink it. I don't know what's so hard for people to understand. I fish an old strip mine by where I live, I'll be the first to tell you I wouldn't eat what I catch.
Toxic Drama Queen...
That is cool

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
