What is the purpose of this guide?

Citizens of the coal fields experience problems associated with living near and developing on abandoned mine land sites. These problems affect their land and their structures and are often dangerous and expensive to repair.

The Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands (DAML) created this guide as an educational outreach resource for the public. Citizens, planners, developers, engineers, and state and local officials should use this guide to evaluate AML sites for existing development on those sites and for house and road placement, or other future development. This guide includes descriptions and illustrations of AML problems along with program eligibility guidelines for funding.
