Citizen Groups Unite To Stop Permits for Delinquent Mine Operator
Submitted: TN Clean Water Network Thursday March 12, 2015

A coalition of Tennessee citizens groups is urging the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) not to reauthorize Clean Water Act permits for what they call a rogue coal mine operator who let them expire for 10 coal facilities. The Tennessee Clean Water Network (TCWN), the Statewide Organizing for Community eMpowerment (SOCM) and the Sierra Club submitted comments Thursday to TDEC opposing the proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and detailing the poor track record of compliance with environmental regulations and worker safety rules at mines and other coal operations owned by coal billionaire investor Jim Justice. The two Justice companies seeking to reauthorize their expired permits reportedly are Premium Coal Company and National Coal, LLC. According to the groups, the expired permits are for coal operations in Anderson, Campbell and Scott counties in East Tennessee. The three citizens groups are specifically recommending that TDEC not allow any new mining or coal operation refuse disposal under any reauthorized NPDES permits.
