The demise of coal and causing water pollution: legal liability for water pollution from abandoned mines


, : The demise of coal and causing water pollution: legal liability for water pollution from abandoned mines. Environmental Law and Management 6(3): 95-102

This article seeks to clarify the legal position in relation to water pollution from abandoned coal mines in the UK. The overflow of water from abandoned mines often occurs as water levels rise in the abandoned workings after the cessation of pumping. The most common pollutant is oxidized iron pyrite which imparts an orange colour to water.
