During the days of Anthracite Mining in Northeastern Pennsylvania the ground came up and coal with it. Some miners went down as sacrificial counterparts of the industrial revolution and never came back up. Mine shafts and tunnels where the coal and ground where excavated left miles of empty space in the ground. The spaces filled with water and mixed with the elements and minerals of the ground to create acid mine drainage. Cellars of the Lackawanna Valley were filling with this waste of the anthracite industry and a bore hole had to be opened in Old Forge, Pennsylvania to let the AMD (acid mine drainage) spare the cellars and valley. The bore hole spews its waste into the Lackawanna River near the confluence of the Susquehanna River. The Chesapeake Bay watershed is the recipient of this largest point producer of pollution. The colorful resin shape embedded in the marble slab of this piece is an abstraction of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The colorful mica resin represents acid mine drainage.
