While we're on topic about the Richard Mine...

When the Richard Mine was in operation, they had to continually pump out the groundwater from the lower levels. The amount of water must have been significant as they continued to mine at lower levels.

Does anyone know where this water was pumped to? Was it pumped into the pond across from the Rockaway Townsquare Mall? Does any evidence remain of the drainage pipes?
