The Law Works - Stream Mitigation
There is much discussion in West Virginia, and elsewhere, about damage to streams and other wetlands as a result of coal mining and other mineral extraction industries. Streams are being buried and wetlands drained. Our water resources are being damaged, and sometimes lost. But what's to be done about it? Dan Ringer with guests WVU Law Professor Patrick C. McGinley and George Kelly, the founder of Environmental Banc and Exchange, LLC, will talk about stream and wetlands mitigation on this episode of The Law Works.
The Law Works airs Thursday at 8:30 p.m. on WV PBS and Friday at 11:00 a.m. on WV PBS2.
