DEP Awards $1.1 Million Mine Reclamation Contracts in Clearfield, Northumberland Counties

The Department of Environmental Protection today announced contract awards for two abandoned mine reclamation projects in Clearfield and Northumberland counties, totaling $1,113,300.

The contract awarded in Woodward Township, Clearfield County totals $324,767 for the implementation of an erosion and sediment control plan, excavating a subsurface drain of 1,720 linear feet, grading 219,300 cubic yards, incorporating 2,400 tons of limestone, and seeding 24 acres.

Totaling $788,533, the contract awarded in Coal Township, Northumberland County will fund the implementation of an erosion and sediment control plan, clearing and grubbing vegetation, grading 490,740 cubic yards, excavating 2,050 cubic yards for drainage, lining 1,540 square yards of rock, and seeding 73.1 acres.

E.M. Brown Inc. of Clearfield was selected to complete the Woodward Township project. The project is expected to start in early January and be completed by July 14 of this year.

The Coal Township project contract was awarded to JBS Dirt Inc. of Canastota, New York. The project is expected to start in January and be completed by March 9, 2015.

Contracts were awarded on a competitive basis and are federally funded by Office of Surface Mining grants. Grant funds are supported by a fee on the modern coal industry and are distributed to states as annual grants to reclaim mine sites that were abandoned prior to passage of the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977.

Just think in 40 years the DEP will be awarding contracts for frack-well reclamation as the toxic chemicals will have by then migrated up to the aquifers and the long-term carcinogenic effects will be well studied using the general populous of PA as the experimental group…

Amazing! We have a expert Geologist in our presence that thinks he/she can predict the future because he/she "was told" or "watched a few shows on TV. Apparently there is no need for a "study or exerement because you have already figured it all out....my point? Educate yourself before you speak my friend.

Again...educate yourself. When wells are done being used they are sealed, filled and permanently plugged....unfortunately you are a consumer as I am. I don't want our earth abused at all. But you contribute to it. I personally feel the only people that have the right to complain are the ones TOTALLY 100% OFF of the grid. No dependence on society at all! ....I have no problem debating an issue with someone who knows the facts about the topic.
