Funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act through the Kentucky Division of Water to the University of Louisville.
Special thanks to the Bernheim Forest and the Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands for their assistance.
This set of four graphic handouts illustrate important concepts from the eight “Acid Mine Drainage” videos: the pH of water and how it changes when water molecules split into hydroxide and hydrogen ions; what the term “logarithmic scale” means relative to pH; how raising pH causes the metal ions of acid mine drainage to fall out of solution; and an acid mine drainage remediation system.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
