Some representative D'Appolonia projects related to mine land reclamation are described in the following:
Reclamation of Coal Refuse Site Using Bio-Solids Application
D’Appolonia was retained to prepare a reclamation plan for a 72-acre site with unreclaimed waste embankments and ponds. A lack of sufficient stockpiled or readily available site soils mad traditional reclamation methods impractical. D'Applonia's reclamation plan incorporated innovative measures utilizing bio-solids applied to regraded coal refuse to achieve revegetation.
Environmental Assessment of the Blackwood Mine Site
D’Appolonia was retained by the Pennsylvania Department of Military Affairs (PADMA) to perform an environmental site assessment in accordance with ASTM E 1527. Subsequently, D'Appolonia was retained by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADER) Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation to prepare a plan for reclamation of the site.
