Rescission of Technical Guidance

DEP ID: 563-2100-216. Title: Coal Mining Activity Permit Renewals. Description: The purpose of this document was to establish administrative procedures and guidelines for coal mine permittee's submittal of permit renewal applications and the Department's processing and review of the applications. However, this document, last revised in 2017, contains obsolete instructions and is no longer needed. Internal application processing procedures are regularly updated and not suitable for inclusion in a technical guidance document. The renewal application has recently been updated with a revised form and specific instructions to replace the information for operators contained in this document.
