Ohio is home to thousands of old coal mines. These abandoned mines pose a threat to their surrounding environment, especially streams and waterways. One artist and teacher at Ohio University found a unique way to bring attention to this problem and even help clean up these polluted areas. In this video, ideastream's Anne Glausser visited John Sabraw to hear how he does it.

This story is part of ideastream's QUEST Science TV special Restoring America's Waters.
