Join the Center for Coalfield Justice at the Public Hearing for the pending Coal Refuse Disposal Area (CRDA) No. 7 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) water permit.  It will take place Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 1-3 P.M. at the Morris Township Community Center located at 1713 Browns Creek Road, Graysville, PA 15337.  

Another beautiful and lush valley will be scoured and then filled in with toxic coal waste.  Consol Energy is seeking another permit to fill in an additional valley that will impact 900 acres and fill small headwater streams that are valuable components of downstream ecosystems.  The proposed discharges associated with this valley fill further threaten those ecosystems.

Come to the meeting and provide your comments and concerns to PA Department of Environmental Protection officials.  Help us stop coal waste from destroying our valleys, streams and ecosystems. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Nick Hood at nick@coalfieldjustice.org or 724-229-3550 ext. 104.
