DEP to stream second day of Surface Mine Board hearing live


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) plans to live stream the second day of the Surface Mine Board’s hearing regarding the appeal of Keystone Industries’ KD No. 2 mine permit, which is for a surface mine near Kanawha State Forest. The hearing started on Aug. 11 and resumes this Wednesday, Aug. 20, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The live stream will be available over the DEP’s “Environment Matters” YouTube channel: and Google+ page:

The live stream should begin shortly before the start of the hearing. Live programming may be interrupted from time to time during breaks in the hearing, which is anticipated to last most of the day. The video from the Aug. 11 proceeding, which was also streamed live, remains available for viewing on both channels.

Environment Matters is the DEP’s monthly public affairs program. It’s produced by the DEP in house and airs on various cable TV systems across the state on the Library Channel, in addition to YouTube.
