MCC Action Alert: Celebrate Veto of Mountaintop Removal Permits

Please join us in thanking the Environmental Protection Agency for their veto of permits for mountaintop removal coal mining in West Virginia.

After years of litigation and debate, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finalized a veto of water permits for a new mountaintop removal coal mine in West Virginia.  The decision is seen by many as a hopeful sign for the future of mining regulation.

The Spruce Number One mine was the biggest mountaintop removal strip mine ever permitted in Appalachia.  It was located in the Spruce Fork Watershed, which has already been negatively impacted by previous mining activity.
