The Abandoned Mine Land Pilot Program, administered by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Mineral Resource Management (DMRM), is a federally funded program which aids in the reclamation of eligible mined lands for long-term economic and community site development purposes.
Site criteria include:
- Risk to public health and safety
- Environmental conditions of the abandoned mine site
- Location of the site
- Intended end use
- Anticipated economic and community benefits
- Project partnerships
- Estimated project cost
- Availability of leveraged funds.
Below is a map showing designated Abandoned Mine Land problem areas in the OMEGA region and links to additional information, including eligible site criteria, on the program.
