RoxCoal, Inc. is proposing to leave fill within 2.22 acres of wetland and 64 linear feet (0.005 acres) of stream for the purpose of building two water treatment systems to treat three mine pool discharges from the Barbara Mine No. 1 and 2. An additional 0.11 acres of temporary wetland fill was restored to pre-existing conditions. The Northern treatment site collects the flow of one contaminated seep into a series of treatment basins, connected by a pipe to an outfall with riprap to a receiving stream. The Southern treatment site funnels the water of two seeps into a series of treatment basins and wetland areas until the treated water will be discharged to Reitz Creek via a rock lined channel. The applicant will mitigate for stream and wetland impacts via the purchase of 1.85 wetland credits from an approved mitigation bank. Drawings of the proposed dock are attached to this notice.
