Coal Mining and the Death of Appalachian Streams
Presented by Dr. Margaret Palmer

Activities that are known to degrade streams are permissible under U.S. law if the natural resources that are lost in the process can be offset by undertaking environmental improvement projects elsewhere. In this seminar, Dr. Palmer will describe how stream networks have been degraded by mountaintop mining, the offset projects (“mitigation actions”) that have been completed, and why those actions do not make up for the stream natural resources lost.
