Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation, 117 slides, 2017

The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement recognized the Huling Branch abandoned mine land reclamation project with the national award for 2017 as the overall highest-rated reclamation project. Located in Clinton County, Pennsylvania, the AML reclamation project team eliminated dangerous highwalls, removed spoil piles, and reduced acid mine drainage impacts on surface water and groundwater. The site is now open to all-terrain vehicles for public recreation. The project team also used the Forestry Reclamation Approach to reforest the land. Descriptive information and media (the nomination, project slides, pictures, and video) are available at http://www.dep.pa.gov/Business/Land/Mining/AbandonedMineReclamation/ProgramAccomplishments/Pages/PA%27sAwardWinningReclamationProjects.aspx.
