For the past two years, the EPA has successfully held up the Ison Rock Ridge permit because they know what impact this proposed mine would have on the nine valleys it would fill and the three miles of streams it would bury. Not to mention the untold health impacts on local residents who are exposed to dirtier air and water as result of irresponsible surface mining.

But Ison Rock’s funeral could come any day now — unless we tell the EPA to stand strong against the coal industry and Keep Ison Rock Ridge Standing.
