What is HCP?

HCP is an abandoned mine site that has been severely impacted by past deep and surface mining practices containing over 277 acres of un-reclaimed abandoned mine pits and spoil piles. Portions of the site (approximately 50 acres) were subsequently used for disposal of municipal and industrial waste in several mine pits.

The site is a brownfield site and is Designated Special Industrial Area (SIA) by the Governor of Pennsylvania giving the site priority attention for remediation. HCP is authorized to conduct the site reclamation/remediation using the residual materials approved under WMGR085, WMGR096, and WMGR125.
