This handbook contains information on the best current practices to minimize disturbances and adverse impacts of surface mining on fish and wildlife resources.

The information presented includes risks, limitations, approximate costs, and maintenance and management requirements for 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.
