Today's announcement from West Virginia state government shows "critical acknowledgement" of the human health affects felt by mountaintop mining operations. The part of the announcement that gave hope, was that the EPA will assure the Clean Water Act is adhered to by the Permittee's who hold now have received permits to mine at Hobet 45 mines.

'The Hobet 45 mine permanently protects streams, maximizes coal recover and
reduces costs.'

It is important that citizens "inspect" the public notice section of the local newspaper, attend public meetings, submit public comments when something important to your habitat is about to change.

Coordination and dialogue are always vital, so is preserving our planet that it may continue to support human life.

"West Virginia officials are strongly encouraged to work in conjunction, not
apart from the federal Environmental Protection Agency."

Thank you for all you do. Peace.
