About this document
This report is one in a series of three reports focused on the Temperate Highland Peat Swamps on Sandstone (THPSS) ecological community and longwall coal mining.
This report captures the findings of a research project that:
- reviewed available information on THPSS and similar swamp communities and the way in which longwall mining can affect these communities
- examined existing techniques used by industry for mitigating impacts on swamps
- evaluated remediation techniques including information about restoration attempts at streams impacted by longwall mining.
This report was prepared using information that was publicly available as of early 2013.
