Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program:

Utah has a history rich in mining including copper, silver and uranium. Often when mines no longer produced, they were simply abandoned leaving equipment, open shafts, tunnels and piles of waste rock. In 1975, the Utah Mined Reclamation Act was passed making it illegal for mines to be abandoned. Today there are an estimated 17,000 mine openings scattered across Utah.

The Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program (AMRP) works to protect the public from dangers of old mines by sealing off access to openings and cleaning up waste. Old mining sites can be intriguing to unsuspecting explorers but can contain dangerous gases, unstable structures and explosives. Stay out and Stay Alive!

The Kenilworth Maintenance project consisted of the stabilization of approximately 1,700 feet of primary stream channel and its associated tributary channels. This was the Abandoned Mines Reclamation Program's (AMRP) largest project to date. This project proved to be a difficult task as the drainage is composed of highly erodible shale and coal refuse which tend to have high flow during high intensity storm events. With prior efforts proven incapable of handling extremely high flows (due to high intensity storm events), a more robust and considerably more geotechnical design was desired and implemented.
