    Iron, sulfide, and aluminum are the chemicals that need to be filtered from the drinking water, as they are water soluble and often leech into groundwater and rivers. This is a difficult task, as due to erosion the water could be polluted by runoff and slurry which washed into the rivers due to rain and poor erosion control, even when strip mining isn’t involved. As for their stories, these are generations of coal miners who have worked this land and these farms who are being poisoned by their own livelyhood in a myriad of ways, as well as having to deal with cave ins and other hazards. It is not an easy profession, after all.
