Waitman-Barbe

Waitman-Barbe Highwall #1 Project

Project Info
Completion Date: Fall 2014

Reclamation of this site in Monongalia County abated the following AML hazards: More than a dozen mine portals, three refuse piles, three sections of highwall, large amounts of trash and polluted water.  The portals required installation of bat gates and wet-seals as well as associated drainage structures.  Three sections of highwall, nearly a mile in length, were located on the site.  Occupied homes located among the features to be reclaimed increased construction difficulty.
