GENERIC MONITORING STEPS Before evaluating monitoring needs for individual sources of potential pollution from surface coal mining activities, Steps 1, 2, and 4 of the methodology must be addressed. Step 1. Select Area or Basin for Monitorinq The selection of areas to be monitored (on an areawide basis) will be made within a State by a designated monitoring agency (DMA). The DMA may be a Federal or State agency charged with developing the monitoring program. The basis for selecting areas will be governed, in general, by a combination of administrative, physiographic, and priority considerations.

It is mined soon after exposure by stripping and is not allowed to weather. After mining, it is usually processed in some manner. Common steps in coal processing include crushing, screening, and washing. Coal from Powder River Basin mines is usually only crushed. After crushing, it is temporarily stored in silos, bunkers, or open piles (used only occasionally, limiting their potential for pollution from infiltration). Coaly waste is considered separately from the remainder of the overburden because it usually has a different type and amount of water pollution potential.

83 mmho/cm. 2. The sulfur content in all three samples was greater than 200 ppm. 57 ppm. Existing monitoring on the AMAX Belle Ayr South lease includes in-place overburden samples that have been collected from eight drill holes on a 1/2mile grid over three--fourthsof the mining area. In these holes, the upper 10 feet have been sampled on 1-foot intervals and the remainder of each hole has been sampled at 10-foot intervals to the top of the coal. Electrical conductivity measurements indicate the materials in general to be slightly saline.
