Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation Division
The mission of the Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Reclamation Program is to protect the public from hazards left as a result of past coal mining practices.
The primary objective of the AML Program is to reclaim surface and underground coal mine sites abandoned prior to August 3, 1977, and that pose the highest threat to the public's health, safety, and general welfare.
This program is 100 percent federally funded from tax on active coal mine production.
The AML Program is coordinated with 16 local conservation districts with particular emphasis placed on the public's involvement in identifying hazardous AML sites.
