Public hearing Thursday on second proposed coal mine near Cordova | al.com

Public hearing Thursday on second proposed coal mine near Cordova | al.com: Another coal mine on the banks of the Mulberry Fork of the Black Warrior River will be the subject of a public meeting Thursday in Sumiton hosted by The Alabama Department of Environmental Management.
A proposed mine at Shepherd Bend on land owned by the University of Alabama has been the subject of intense controversy because wastewater discharges from the strip mine would enter the river just upstream from a Birmingham Water Works intake that supplies water to 200,000 customers. The BWWB is fighting the permit issued to that mine and has lodged objections to the Reed No. 5 mine, which is farther upstream.
