Abstract
This handbook contains information on the best current practices to minimize disturbances and adverse impacts of surface mining on fish and wildlife resources. Current state and federal legislation was reviewed to determine those practices that were most compatible with the best technology currently available, fish and wildlife plans, and reclamation plans for the central and southern appalachia region of the United States. The information presented includes risks, limitations, approximate costs, and maintenance and management requirements of each practice. Plans for the restoration of specific habitats, according to the best current practices, are also included. Research done under Contract Jo100089 by Science Applications, Inc., As a result of an interagency agreement between the Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Mines.
