MACED’s statement about the U.S. Department of the Interior’s new stream protection rule

T6he U.S. Department of the Interior released new rules for the protection of streams from the impact of surface mining – rules which haven’t been updated in three decades.

We’re happy about this update because we know that in order to have economically thriving and sustainable communities in the mountains, having clean water will be essential.
