Wyoming: Natural Resources
The Environmental Quality Council proposed amendments to land quality rules concerning non-coal mine permit applications. The amendments would establish application requirements for the use of inert material as backfill at non-coal mining operations as part of an approved reclamation plan and provide that such requirements also apply to small mine permit applications. A hearing will be held February 22, 2023. Comments are due February 20, 2023. See https://rules.wyo.gov/Search.aspx?mode=2.
