The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) is giving the abandoned mine reclamation community an opportunity to provide feedback on your interactions with the department regarding abandoned mine issues since PA DEP’s reorganization in 2011. Since the reorganization, the PA DEP’s abandoned mine program has been divided into two bureaus; the Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation (BAMR) handles all abandoned mine land issues while the Bureau of Conservation and Restoration handles all abandoned mine drainage issues. Although these two bureaus have different focuses, they remain linked. PA DEP believes that valuable data collected through this survey will help improve the effectiveness of the reorganization.
