Mine-Scarred Lands Initiative Tool Kit: Pennsylvania Mine
Summit County, Colorado

The Pennsylvania Mine project is focused on improving water quality in the Snake River Watershed. The key challenges for this project are significant water treatment liability concerns associated with the Clean Water Act and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), and technical difficulties due to the isolated location of the adit and extreme climate. The community has been working closely with EPA to explore innovative options to address liability concerns. It has also researched technical remediation alternatives.
