Title: Stream Protection Rule 

This rule revises our regulations to improve the balance between environmental protection and the Nation's need for coal as a source of energy.  This final rule will  better protect streams, fish, wildlife, and related environmental values from the adverse impacts of surface coal mining operations and provide mine operators with a regulatory framework to avoid water pollution and the long-term costs associated with water treatment.
