EFFECTS OF COAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE NORTHERN GREAT PLAINS: REVIEW OF MAJOR ISSUES AND CONSEQUENCES AT DIFFERENT RATES OF DEVELOPMENT

This report describes cooperative studies of several major impacts of increased production of coal from deposits in the Northern Great Plains region at different theoretical rates of development during the next 25-year period. The purpose of the report is to provide information that will be useful in developing a perspective of the issues and consequences of expanded development of coal in the region. The reported studies are expected to be helpful in the decisionmaking processes of individuals; Federal, State, and local governments; industry; and other public and private groups. The reported studies and investigations were made by seven work groups, whose specific subject areas were: Regional Geology; Mineral Resources; Water; Atmospheric Aspects; Surface Resources; Social, Economic, and Cultural Aspects; and National Energy Considerations. Maps are attached.
