Environment Impact Assessment of Coal Mining

2013-11-13  Environmental impact assessment is a decision making tool to predict the effect of a proposed activity/ project on the environment, to compare various alternatives for a project and to identify best combination of economic, environmental and social costs and benefits. Coal mining is the process of extracting the coal from the deep underground mines in the earth crust. Coal mining is one of the most illegal activities going on in the country. At the same time it totally neglects the role of EIA in its pre-operational, during mining and post operational plans. Here various case studies of coal mining are done and the impact of coal mining to the environment is looked into with some measures to mitigate this problem with proper use of technology and generation of awareness. The impact of coal mining on land, water, health of workers, air and social impact on surrounding villages and cities is evaluated and environment management plan of coal mining
