This paper explores how policy structure, institutions, and political climate impact the ability of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) to ensure the reclamation of surface coal mines. We conduct a policy review that traces the impacts of the three parts of SMCRA; Reclamation Standards, Reclamation Bonding Requirements, and the Abandoned Mine Land : Ryan M. Yonk, Josh T. Smith, Arthur R. Wardle.

Fortunately, the approved West Virginia program still contains a regulatory counterpart to section (b)(15)(C), at CSR a. However, we recommend that West Virginia reinsert the deleted statutory language at West Virginia Code section (b)(15)(C) to ensure the protection of the public from the effects of blasting.

We estimate that 5% of the land surface within our study area was converted to surface mines between and.   Study site. Sampling sites are in Mud River, a Central Appalachian surface coal mining region that lies in West Virginia’s Lower Guyandotte watershed ().Mud River has two by:

The water quality data were analyzed for suspended solids and settleable solids content, and. Water from the flooded mines is chemically similar to water from nearby wells; however, nearby coal mining or pumpage from the mines may cause roof falls or subsidence, turbidity, changes in water quality, or leakage into or from the mines.

More than 70 communities in West Virginia use water from coal mines for public supply. The ADTI Manual on Predicting Water Quality at Surface Coal Mines Robert L. Kleinmann National Energy Technology Laboratory, U.S. Dept.

This paper briefly summarizes the contents of a recently completed book on the subject of predicting water quality at surface coal mines. for use in West Virginia coal mines which, in the fiscal year when the equipment is added to the list, is not required by the Mine Safety and Health Administration of the United States Department of Labor or the West Virginia Office Of Miners' Health, Safety And Training or File Size: 3MB.

The study was based on chemical analyses of water leached through coals and on the quality of surface and ground water in the vicinity of coal mines. In addition, water-quality data from the out- crop area of the Pottsville and Allegheny Groups were evaluated with respect to the type of environment under which the coal was deposited, and to the.

Disturbed soils, such as those resulting from agriculture, erosion, deforestation, road building, urbanization, and surface mining, require specialized treatments to make them suitable for subsequent use and management.

Procedures to correct soil physical and chemical properties of these soils have been evaluated and more work is needed to make these soils useful for a variety of post.

Mine drainage. Mountaintop removal mining (MTR), also known as mountaintop mining (MTM), is a form of surface mining at the summit or summit ridge of a mountain.
