Our Local Partners

A major part of the Sludge Hub network is the local landowners who elect to join the network. Some landowners join due to the issues they face with acid mine drainage, dangerous highwalls, or suspicious impoundments. Other landowners hold a piece of coal history and support the ongoing spirit and culture of coal mining in the post-coal era.

Landowners seeking to join the The Sludge Hub & Company's network can learn more here.
