The report provides guidance for evaluating the environmental impacts of a proposed surface coal mine requiring a new source National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to discharge wastewater to the navigable waters of the U.S. The guidelines are intended to assist in the identification of potential impacts, and the information requirements for evaluating such impacts. The report includes guidance on identification of potential wastewater effluents, air emissions, and solid wastes. In addition, the guidelines include an 'overview' chapter that gives a general description of the surface coal mining industry, significant problems associated with it, and recent trends in location, raw materials, processes, pollution control, and the demand for industry output.
