This site is along a residential, public road below a surface mine with a coal loading facility. The reclaimed valley fill, loadout facilities, and ponds are visible to the north of the testing point on the map. This site has a particularly high conductivity reading, at 1820 μS/cm. The typical Appalachian stream would be below 500 μS/cm. The dissolved solids are calculated based on the conductivity and temperature, so this value is also very high.
