Abstract or Summary
  • The surface mining of coal has accelerated in northwest Colorado to the point where public pressure plus impending state and federal regulations dictate the need for comprehensive reclamation plans. A large coal company operating in Moffat County has solicited recommendations concerning soils, hydrogeology, geomorphology, aesthetics, wildlife, vegetation, microclimatology, and legal aspects of reclamation problems with the intent of restoring rangeland suitable for grazing with wildlife habitat important to the region's recreation-derived revenue. Specific recommendations have been presented which realize the practical limits of operating procedures affecting the handling of topsoil and overburden, the design of roads, and the nature and shape of the final recontoured landscape.
