Belle Ayr Mine Receives Reclamation Award.
This national award recognizes the work that has been done with Caballo Creek. The creek winds its way through the Belle Ayr mine permit area. It includes several constructed pools and is typical of prairie streams in northeast Wyoming. The creek is home to various wildlife including fish, waterfowl, ducks and great blue herons. The reclamation of Caballo Creek has provided the area's animals with a place to live and much needed water. Reclamation of the creek started in 1976 and continues today.
Steve Rennell, president of Foundation Coal West, Inc., says, "We are honored to receive this award. The reclamation of Caballo Creek represents one of the myriad projects undertaken during 30 years of hard work and reinforces Foundation's mission to protect and revitalize the natural environment to the benefit of many, for generations to come."
The Belle Ayr Mine received the award last night at the Department of Interior awards dinner in Washington, DC.
