On the google map that you will see with the link below, there is a brown area that looks like some sort of dried up dam. This is near the confluence of the Nesquehoning Creek and the Lehigh River near Jim Thorpe. Anyone know what this is?

I looks like a man-made pond that was drained.

Is it the mine drainage remediation wetland described here?

http://articles.mcall.com/2007-10-30/ ... -mine-water-mine-drainage

If you Google "lausanne tunnel" you will find a lot of information about a constructed wetland to treat mine drainage, and I'm not sure of the location, but the articles say very close to the confluence of the stream with the Lehigh River, so maybe that's it.

troutbert,
Thanks. That's apparently what this is. I had no idea.

Like you said, there's lots of good historical info if you google Lausanne Tunnel.

The slideshow is really interesting.

That is without question a passive wetland AMD treatment system.
