Tim Danehy Recognized With National Reclamationist of the Year Award

In April, Tim Danehy, a mine reclamation innovator from Butler County, was recognized during the Joint Conference of the American Society of Mining and Reclamation, West Virginia Mine Drainage Task Force, and Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative with the 2017 Reclamationist of the Year Award.
The Award recognizes individuals “demonstrating outstanding accomplishments in the practical application or evaluation of reclamation technology” as well as rewarding individuals “responsible for implementing innovative practices or designs for new reclamation strategies.”
Some highlights of Tim’s accomplishments include co-founding the nonprofits BioMost, Inc. and co-leading Stream Restoration Incorporated as one of its Directors and Secretary/Treasurer; creating innovative and cost-effective methods of passive treatment; enhancing the sustainability of watershed protection and restoration efforts; publishing several papers, journals, book, and proceedings; piloting innovative acid mine drainage treatment work that has led to the development of five patents.
