John Stefanko Makes Presentation To Brazil On DEP’s Abandoned Mine Reclamation

DEP Executive Deputy Secretary John Stefanko gave a presentation via the web October 12 to the annual IV Regional Seminary on Coal Mining Reclamation in Criciúma, Brazil.
Stefanko discussed the coal mining industry in Pennsylvania, its historic impact on the state’s air, land and water, and projects that have successfully remediated damage done by past mining.
There are nearly 250,000 acres of land and more than 5,500 stream miles negatively impacted by pre-1977 mining in Pennsylvania.
Fortunately, DEP has a robust abandoned mine reclamation program staffed with about 150 geologists, engineers, biologists, and others who work tirelessly to clean up degraded mine sites.
