Developed as an aid to surface coal mine operators to identify and implement the best current practices (BCPs) for protecting and improving fish and wildlife resources on their minesite during both the active coal extraction and postmining phases of their operation.^The area of concern is the Eastern Interior Coal Region (EICR), commonly referred to as the Illinois Coal Basin, comprised by the states of Illinois, Western Indiana and Western Kentucky as part of the larger Interior Coal Province.^The handbook is intended to be a user-oriented document.^Technical references listed at the end of each practice provide background and theory from which the techniques were developed.
