The Washington, Pa.-based Center for Coalfield Justice on Thursday filed a petition to intervene in a permit battle between Consol Energy Inc. and the state regarding a proposed expansion of a Greene County mining operation.

The Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board in February issued a permit allowing Consol to change plans at its Bailey Mine and Prep Plant in Richhill and Morris townships from underground development mining of 2,500 acres to longwall mining. The permit carried a provision that the company perform biological monitoring of Patterson Creek and its tributaries as well as those for Brown Creek should post-mining restoration be required. Consol appealed the decision.

The non-profit Center for Coalfield Justice wants the board to uphold its special condition.
