About: Historic Brookside Alabama Coal Mine Site

I wonder if the water pouring out of that mine and into the Creek has been tested for pollutants?
Great pictures. It's been so long since I've seen that site. Are you familiar with the Coalburg Mines near the Lower Coalburg community. Still many remains there. Think that they were owned by Georgia Pacific at one time.
