WELCOME!

Welcome to the website for the North Fork Watershed Project!

Located in the highlands of West Virginia in Tucker County.  It is heavily impacted by acid mine drainage (AMD) and metal deposits caused by abandoned deep mines and strip mines.  This degrades the quality of water used for drinking and for recreation, as well as the scenic potential of the river.  The problem affects towns and communities adjacent to the river, but it also affects aquatic life and towns down stream.
