This guideline document has been prepared to augment the information previously released by the Office of Federal Activities entitled Environmental Impact Assessment Guidelines for Selected New Source Industries. Its purpose is to provide guidance for the preparation and/or review of environmental documents (Environmental Information Document or Environmental Impact Statement) which EPA may require under the authority of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as part of the new source (NPDES) permit application review process. This document has been prepared in seven sections, organized in a manner to facilitate analysis of the various facets of the environmental review process. The initial section includes a broad overview of the industry intended to familiarize the audience with the processes, trends, impacts and applicable pollution regulations commonly encountered in the underground coal mining and coal cleaning industry. Succeeding sections provide a comprehensive identification and analysis of potential environmental impacts, pollution control technologies available to meet Federal standards, and other controllable impacts. The document concludes with three sections: available alternatives, a listing of Federal regulations (other than pollution control) which may apply to the new source applicant, and a comprehensive listing of references for further reading.
