    They have actually just aprroved the opening of the Hobet 45 coal mining operation in West Virginia. The Hobet 45 Mine meets the requirements of the Clean Water Act, which clears the way for a final permit. EPA worked closely with Hobet Mining LLC and the Corps to redesign the proposed Hobet 45 mine to eliminate nearly 50 percent of stream impacts, reduce anticipated stream contamination, and protect public health. The Hobet 45 operation is expected to employ 460 United Mine Workers of America coal miners.
