More Death Approved

Apr 22, 2021

Just in time for #EarthDay2021, WVDEP approved another 1.7 square miles of deadly mountaintop removal on Coal River Mountain. Multi-billion-dollar Alpha Metallurgical Resources will blast this area into carcinogenic dust that will drift into the lungs of neighboring children and adults, and they'll fill the valleys to pollute the streams and river for decades. If you think this is a bad idea, it couldn't hurt to politely tell WVDEP permit supervisor Laura Claypool that she signed a death sentence for neighboring people at The permit number is S301419. 

There's a good chance we'll appeal the "Turkeyfoot" permit, so stay tuned. And if you can chip in to help us out, please do so at Thanks!
