first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces Funding to Support Environmental Cleanup and Revitalization Projects at 12 Abandoned Mine Sites Across the State Potts Run acid mine drainage treatment/stream restoration, Knox Township: A passive treatment system to lower acidity should remove this stream from the impaired waters list and restore it as a coldwater fishery, improving property values and outdoor recreation opportunities.Lackawanna County Environment,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced the approval of $25 million in funding for environmental cleanup and revitalization projects at 12 abandoned mine land (AML) locations in fourteen municipalities across Pennsylvania.“These projects demonstrate my administration’s strong commitment to assisting Pennsylvania communities in overcoming the challenges of abandoned mine land,” Governor Wolf said. “While it protects public health and safety through environmental cleanup, the disbursement of this funding will also support the creation of thousands of jobs, create new residential and business opportunities, and revitalize communities and outdoor recreation spaces that attract people and improve quality of life. I’m thrilled that we could support these important projects.”The approved abandoned mine cleanup projects will help eliminate public health and safety hazards and improve stream, groundwater, and land quality. The local community and economic development projects include: a regional airport expansion, new business parks, a residential development, reuse of coal waste in electricity generation, and outdoor sports and recreation amenities, such as trails, ballfields, and fishing.“Mine reclamation is the exacting process of removing acid mine drainage from streams, neutralizing acidity in the soil; removing dangerous mine highwalls; stabilizing sinkholes; and addressing other hazards,” said Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “But ‘mine reclamation’ ultimately means a renewal of possibility for coal communities, and this can be a game-changer.”The DEP Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation solicited proposals and selected projects based on federal guidelines and project benefits. DEP also provides or assists with the technical expertise needed to restore land, water, and air quality at the abandoned mine sites. The Wolf Administration is leading the coordination of more than 30 local organizations, businesses, and individuals to accomplish these important projects in an impactful way.Project funding comes from the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) 2017 AML Pilot Program, which specifically targets abandoned mine cleanup projects that are linked to local community and economic development goals.“OSMRE is pleased to partner with Pennsylvania’s AML Program to implement these AML Pilot Program projects to reclaim abandoned mine sites and provide local economic revitalization and community development benefits,” said Thomas Shope, OSMRE Appalachian Regional Director.The full list of 2017 AML Pilot Projects includes:Beaver County Quakake Tunnel acid mine drainage treatment/trout stream restoration/Black Creek Trail creation, Packer Township and Weatherly Borough: An active treatment system to remove acid will restore 8 miles of wild trout stream (Quakake Creek and Black Creek).

first_imgLiverpool arrives at the Metropolitan with confidence deposits in the clouds. He is on his way to breaking all the records in the Premier to be crowned champion with unusual speed. He beat Norwich, the colista of the championship, in a match in which those of Klopp showed discomfort, especially in the first half. Kloop tried to save resources against the last classified of his championship, but he could not do it and finally had to pull Mané and Fabinho, both of them convalescing lately, to solve the match. And it was precisely an exrojiblanco the last to circumvent the attention of the two central network. Raúl Jiménez tied Wolverhampton-Liverpool momentarily on January 23 with a header from Adama Traoré. It was 1-1 because before Henderson had scored, also above the exit of a corner. In the 84th minute of that duel, Firmino finally gave Liverpool the victory. The Mexican striker had managed to surprise Liverpool in a kickback that he initiated, to send to space on Robertson’s back. There Traoré gave continuity to the counter and returned to serve so that the Aztec headed from the point of penalty free of mark. In addition, before the Canaries the Mersey city team added another unbeaten goal again. Tettey was close to scoring in the second half, but the post spat out his shot from outside the area. Apart from that, the Norwich had another option to score, this one in the first half. But Alisson came out very well at Pukki’s feet. In the end another match that the Brazilian added without fitting and the best thing for Klopp is that he feels he has found the ideal match to accompany Van Dijk in the center of the rear. Matip’s injury raised doubts. Later the German technician met Lovren’s, but what seemed like problems became solutions. On December 14 Joe Gomez (22 years old) formed as a starting couple with Van Dijk in the center of the defense against Watford and since then, in 900 minutes of Premier, Liverpool has only conceded a goal.center_img Van Dijk had to leave to cover Robertson’s back and Gomez did not get to cover the Mexican. In the first half Jiménez again had another occasion, this time looking for Alexander-Arnold, the other side of Liverpool, clearly identifying the weak points of the network defense. Since that December 14 when Gomez settled with Van Dijk, Liverpool has added nine goals to zero in ten Premier matches and has only conceded that goal from Raúl Jiménez.last_img read more
