This report was prepared to assist US-EPA III as it extends its regulatory purview to the West Virginia surface coal mining industry under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) established by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 (FWPCA, P.L. 92-500). It (1) describes existing conditions and trends in the surface coal mining industry, (2) identifies known environmentally sensitive resources throughout the State, (3) comments on the probable future flow of applications for newsource NPDES permits and on policy alternatives which must be specified by US-EPA as the new program is implemented, and (4) presents the conclusions and recommendations of the consultant to US-EPA Region III for implementation of the NPDES program.
