The National Park Service will host an informational meeting to provide an update on the cleanup and restoration efforts for Lamberts Run, which is highly impacted by acid mine drainage (AMD). The meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 9 at 11 a.m. at the Flight 93 National Memorial headquarters, 6424 Lincoln Highway in Stoystown. The meeting is open to the public.
Lamberts Run, which is adjacent to the Flight 93 National Memorial, has long been polluted by AMD from underground mines that were abandoned prior to World War II. Several watershed partners, including the National Park Service, the Somerset Conservation District, the Somerset Conservancy, the Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection have joined in the effort to clean up this tributary stream.
