In 2009, SRBC initiated the Susquehanna River Basin Anthracite Region Strategy, which is based on a similar scope of work completed for the West Branch Susquehanna Subbasin in 2008. In the Anthracite Region, SRBC is coordinating its efforts with the Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation (EPCAMR). Sharing data between EPCAMR's Anthracite Region Mine Pooling Mapping Initiative and SRBC's remediation strategy is valuable in moving both initiatives forward. Both agencies will continue to work together to implement the restoration strategy and continue the mine pool mapping effort in additional Anthracite Coal Fields.
