EPA will hold public hearings

The EPA will be holding public hearings in eastern Kentucky to discuss mining permits they have filed objections to.

Gwen Keyes Fleming of the EPA says their intent is not to stop coal mining, but to ensure it proceeds in an environmentally acceptable way.

The Hazard Herald reports that five permits pertaining to operations in Perry County include one permit that was filed in October 2010 by ICG Hazard.

Two public meetings will be held in Pikeville at the Eastern Kentucky Expo Center on Thursday, June 7th at 4pm & 7pm.
