Redeveloping Coalfields

The Office of Surface Mining (OSM) led the first successful coal fields EPA Brownfields Pilot Demonstration grant, bringing $200,000 to a rural, coal-impacted watershed in Pennsylvania for inventory, assessment, and planning. The goal is to spur economic growth and create suitable land for commercial business, recreational trails, and community parks. OSM also signed a Memorandum of Agreement with EPA's Brownfields Program to extend this program to other locations.
