Abstract The purpose of this project was to establish a method for prospective epidemiological analysis of the health effects associated with the development of western coal sites. Particular emphasis was placed on potential community health effects related to mining, especially mining effluents which may enter drinking water supplies in hazardous quantities. The study area is defined as United States EPA Region VIII which includes Colorado, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas. This research effort involved: (1) development of criteria for selecting communities suitable for future in-depth study and selection of several such communities; (2) characterization of health and environmental quality in the region as a whole; (3) formulation of data requirements for a prospective epidemiological study; and (4) evaluation of the quality of environmental, health, and demographic data currently available for such a study in these communities.
