Vigo Coal seeks water permit for surface coal mining on 734 acres in Illinois

is seeking a permitto discharge fill material into streams in southern Illinois to extract about 2.4million tons of coal near its Friendsville mine in Wabash County.

The projectis located near Mount Carmel. According to a public notice filed by the U.S. ArmyCorps of Engineers, the company proposes to discharge fill material into 7,473 linearfeet of intermittent streams, 16,660 linear feet of ephemeral streams and 4,225linear feet of perennial streams of Fordice Creek and unnamed tributaries.

The proposalwould also affect approximately 53 acres of wetlands.

The companyhas offered to mitigate impacts of the plan by restoring 21,369 feet of ephemeral,intermittent and perennial stream channels both on-site and off-site within theFordice Creek watershed. Impacts on the wetlands would be mitigated by enhancinga total of almost 154 acres of wetlands at two separate off-site areas, the noticesaid.

The Corpssaid there appears to be no historical or cultural resources within the projectarea. The project also will not destroy or endanger any endangered species or theircritical habitats, the Corps said.

Publiccomment on the project is open on the project until May 6.

Vigo'sFriendsville mine produced 909,793 tons of coal in 2015, up from 849,383 tons in2014, according to data from the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration.
