WPCAMR Invites Your Response To A Survey Of The Abandoned Mine Reclamation Community

The Western PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation is now conducting a survey of the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Community to gather insights about the techniques and tools used by groups, agencies and professionals to ensure the continued success of these efforts.
It is widely accepted that Pennsylvania is a leader in abandoned mine reclamation.  Many here in Pennsylvania would agree that one reason we are so successful is because we have developed and maintained a cooperative community of agency employees at all levels of government, nonprofit watershed associations, academia, and professional representatives of industry, business, and construction contractors all working towards a common good.  
But beyond our cooperation, what specifically sets the AMR Community in Pennsylvania apart and what lessons can other abandoned coal mining-impacted states across our nation learn from us?
WPCAMR is interested in these questions and would like your participation in a discussion.  We are starting off with A SURVEY that digs deep.  
It is only 20 questions, but it will get you thinking about Pennsylvania’s success in AMR and the watershed movement more broadly.  We would like anyone and everyone who participates in abandoned mine reclamation in any capacity to complete THE SURVEY.
We will also be contacting key individuals for more in depth conversations on this topic.  If you would like to discuss this with us, feel free to give us a call anytime at 724-832-3625.
The results of THIS SURVEY will be shared at a national conference in September and will help to develop a Toolkit for the grassroots campaign underway that is promoting the Reauthorization of the collection fees associated with the Surface Mine Control and Reclamation Act of 1977.  
Pass it along to anyone who can contribute.
We know that we are all busy and surveys can feel like a burden, but they can also be fun and, most likely, we have all thought about these questions a time or two.  And, who doesn’t like talking about themselves on occasion?  
So, HERE is your chance to contribute to a great conversation.
