Last week, EPA officials toured eastern Kentucky, and WFPL’s Erica Peterson tagged along to report on the visit. They stopped in four communities, and spoke with residents concerned about the environmental impacts of mining.

On Here and Now today, we heard Erica’s interview with Gwen Keyes Fleming,  EPA Region 4 Administrator, as well as her feature report filed at the conclusion of the trip.
