A simple approach to surface mine sedimentology is presented in which the watershed is subdivided into homogeneous subwatersheds and flow and sediment routed to a reservoir. Flow calculations are made using Soil Conservation Service procedures and sediment yields using J. R. Williams' routing procedures. Size distribution of the sediment entering the reservoir is calculated using procedures which assume that the large particles are using the DEPOSITS routines which predict outflow concentrations and size distributions from continuity principles and plug flow concepts. Sample simulations are presented. Simulations are given which indicate the potential for meeting the 70 mg/liter standard by using chemical flocculents.
