AML Team Reference Notebook

The Abandoned Mine Lands Team Reference Notebook is intended to illustrate the extent of the abandoned mine lands (AML) contamination problems across the U.S. and the range of actions that EPA's AML Team intends to take in addressing this problem. Although its aim is to provide assistance to EPA staff in better coordinating their AML functions, this document should not be considered as guidance.

The Reference Notebook includes an introduction to EPA's AML Team, an overview of the cause and extent of the AML problem, an overview of EPA, federal, and state AML programs, and a look at AML site reuse and redevelopment. As this document provides an overview of many topics, numorous appendices and tables supplement the text by offering a deeper examination of individual chapter components.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, available as a free download, to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more about PDF, and for a link to the free Acrobat Reader.
