Hundreds of Pennsylvania Homes Protected After Mine Cleanup

The Department of Environmental Protection in Pennsylvania has completed a $5.6 million mine reclamation project which will help protect more than 100 homes near the mine.

An abandoned mine in Clearfield County of Pennsylvania has been restored after the completion of a $5.6 million mine reclamation project. As a result, the ground under 154 homes has been stabilized, further protecting them from mine subsidence.

“This critically important project that required two years to complete eases the concerns homeowners had expressed about potential mine subsidence causing thousands of dollars in damage and possibly making their homes unlivable,” DEP Deputy Secretary for the Office of Active and Abandoned Mine Operations John Stefanko said.

The project first began in March 2012 and consisted of drilling 722 boreholes and injecting various materials such as concrete into the mine.
