A public meeting will be held tomorrow night in Craig to discuss the newly released Environmental Assessment of the South Taylor Pit at ColoWyo Coal Mine. The Office of Surface Mining was ordered to redo the assessment, by a federal judge in Denver who felt the original assessment didn’t do enough to consider the effects of burning coal on the environment. Several public meetings and opportunities for public comment followed the ruling as the assessment was being redone. Those comments are reflected in the new assessment. Tomorrow night’s meeting will give residents their first opportunity to talk about it. If you would like to see the assessment before the meeting, you’ll find a copy at the Moffat and Rio Blanco County Courthouses, the BLM Offices in Craig and Meeker, and the Moffat County Library. You can also find it on the OSM’s website. Tomorrow night’s meeting will be from 6 to 8 at Moffat County High School.
