The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), Bureau of District Mining Operations, and Bureau of Mining and Reclamation, administers the Pennsylvania program that regulates coal mining enforces Pennsylvania's coal mining laws and regulations to control areas disturbed during mining and to minimize any long-term . Coal mine drainage currently pollutes over km of Pennsylvania’s 87 km of streams (Arway ). Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP ) records estimate the amount of pollution from coal mine drainage at 10 7 tons per year of acidity as CaCO 3 by: 6.

The protection of wetlands is an issue of national concern. Of primary concern is how to mitigate for wetland losses. Few cost-effective. opportunities exist to restore and create wetlands, thereby helping to reverse the trend in wetlands loss and perhaps create an increase. Surface mining, which historically has had substantialFile Size: 1MB. The Wetlands Research Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing an approach to establish quantitative performance criteria for project wetlands. In this approach, groups of natural wetlands serve as reference sites .

America's Wetlands. Wetlands are areas where water covers soil all or part of the time. Wetlands are important because they protect and improve water quality, provide fish and wildlife habitats, store floodwaters and maintain surface water flow during dry periods.
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) amends § (relating to the identification and delineation of wetlands - statement of policy). This amendment will provide consistency among State and Federal agencies that are involved in the permitting of activities affecting wetlands while at the same time providing the necessary.
Pennsylvania State Wetland Program Summary. Voluntary Restoration. Section A. Quick View Description of Pennsylvania’s Wetlands. Pennsylvania has more thanacres of wetlands. These include forested wetlands, scrub -shrub wetlands and emergent wetlands. About 97% of the state's wetlands fall within the palustrine system.
Surface Coal Mining. The primary methods of surface coal mining used in Pennsylvania are: Strip Mining: Layers of soil and rock overburden are removed the coal exposed coal seam is area is then backfilled, regraded, and replanted during the reclamation process.

To be protected under the Freshwater Wetlands Act, a wetland must be acres (5 hectares or larger). Wetlands smaller than this may be protected if they are considered of unusual local importance.
Around every wetland is an 'adjacent area' of feet that is also regulated to provide protection for the wetland. Regulations found at Pennsylvania Code Ti Chapter provide the permitting criteria and wetland mitigation and replacement requirements.
Supporting the Commonwealth’s efforts, the federal Clean Water Act also provides for the protection of wetlands under the Army Corps of Engineers Section permitting program.

Surface mining for coal has dramatically altered millions of hectares throughout the Appalachian region of eastern North America. Flat benches and vertical high walls have replaced well-drained slopes, and wetlands have developed ‘accidentally’ on abandoned benches.
Surface mining is continuing in this region, but new regulations do not include specifications for Cited by: 5.
