  • This houses all of the chemical, biological, and physical data that is collected by Rural Action. There are many other resources housed on this site, including HydroView, an interactive watershed planning tool. Also, a list of past non-point source monitoring reports for AMD-affected watersheds in Ohio, including all the Rural Action supported watersheds, is available. The website also has digital copies of all approved acid mine drainage abatement and treatment (AMDAT) plans for the state of Ohio, including the Rural Action-supported watersheds.
  • The Ohio River Basin Alliance: A multi-state collaborative working for the ecological health and economic well-being of the Ohio River. There is an annual conference and regular planning meetings.
  • The Reclaiming Appalachia Coalition is a regional group of organizations working to promote innovative reuse of our abandoned mine lands. Rural Action is joined by Appalachian Voices, Coalfield Development, and Downstream Voices as leading partners. Find webinars, interactive maps, and more.
