This document is a transcript of a statement given by Richard diProtoro at a public hearing conducted by the West Virginia Department of Energy on June 28, 1988, in Lincoln County. The purpose of the hearing was to give residents a chance to voice their opinions concerning an application by two coal companies to strip-mine at Six Mile Creek in Lincoln County. Richard diProtoro is a geologist and argues against the permit, saying it would pollute well water and the environment as well as mentioning technical and legal problems with the application.
