EC was pleased to be one of the groups interviewed by former Federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation & Enforcement Director Joe Pizarchik about the importance of reauthorizing the U.S. Abandoned Mine Land Trust Fund, which supports AML reclamation, remediation, and economic development projects across the country. Here, Elizabeth Hughes discusses EC’s Askam AMD Treatment System, which was supported in part by AML funding. Mr. Pizarchik also toured Bliss Bank with EC’s President, Terry Ostrowski, PE. Kudos also to EPCAMR for coordinating these talks. It’s essential that the challenges – and opportunities – of legacy mine lands be heard.
