The passive, all-gravity-flow system uses no pumps and no electricity. Up to 1,000 gallons per minute of acidic water pours out of the old mine and flows through a series of three ponds. . In the second pond the mine water filters through layers of mushroom and cow manure, hardwood chips, hay and limestone before flowing into a settling pond and then through a natural wetlands before entering Two lick Reservoir.

The current passive treatment system of ponds was quickly designed and built to replace the chemical treatment in order to protect the water supply source of the Pennsylvania-American Water Company downstream from the discharge site. Eppley said the chemical and passive treatment of the escaping mine water has significantly improved Two Lick's water quality, and the reservoir is again a warm-water fishery. Fisher Scientific's plant in White Township won an award in the resource protection category by replacing its three-stage metal parts washer unit with a more efficient stainless steel unit. The upgrade resulted in a near- ly total elimination of the plant's waste discharges regulated by its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination permit. The average decrease in water usage from August 2002 until now is about 57 percent, with an 82-percent reduction in the daily water discharge from the facility and a zero discharge for metal washing pollutants. That equates to an average decrease of 294,000 gallons of water per month discharged to the local stream and a 100-percent decrease in the pounds of priority pollutants being discharged. In addition, chemical usage in the washer has been reduced by about 74 percent, decreasing the potential for chemical spills or releases. Residual waste generated by the washer has decreased by about 71 percent on a daily basis.
