Get Involved

Thank you, everyone, for submitting your objections during the public comment period which ended September 1, 2021. You will have an opportunity to participate and provide testimony at the Mined Land Reclamation Board hearing later this year.

You can still enter objections (or additional comments) to the DRMS. Your input will be seen and counted, but you will not be invited to the public hearing. The total number of objections (whether submitted by September 1st or afterward) is IMPORTANT!
