The Department of Environmental Protection's Mining Program is responsible for enacting and implementing regulations pertaining to land reclamation. The program primarily focuses on the reclamation of lands mined for phosphate, but some regulations (mostly found in Part III, sections 387.401 et seq.) also pertain more generally to mined land. This legislation contains information on mining inspections and certifications, owner liability, exemptions and permits, and regulations which pertain specifically to heavy metal mining.
