Anthracite Heritage Museum Celebrating Our Anthracite Legacy Program By Robert Hughes EPCAMR April 21

The Anthracite Heritage Museum will host Robert Hughes, Executive Director of the Eastern PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation for a presentation on the topic of The Sustainability Factor of Coalfield Community Groups in Anthracite and Bituminous Region and EPCAMR's Role," one in the new Anthracite Legacy Lecture Series.
The presentation by Hughes will be geared towards abandoned mines, mine reclamation, mine water pollution, environmental advocacy of long-term community groups within the coalfields, and survey results of groups from across Pennsylvania that continue to work on legacy abandoned mine issues that make them sustainable and continue to persevere.
Lessons learned and advice from long-standing community groups from across Pennsylvania  that have worked in the anthracite and bituminous coalfield communities will be highlighted.
An explanation of the Surface Mining Reclamation Control Act, the RECLAIM Act, Environmental Good Samaritan Act, and brief highlights of regional EPCAMR Programs, Environmental Education Watershed Tours, water quality monitoring, aquatic connectivity surveys, and technical services that we're providing to the state and the public at large will be discussed as well including our underground mine mapping project, statewide conferences on abandoned mine reclamation, and 3D underground mine pool modeling.
