      My family lived in Appalachia for 250 years, and I want to keep it that way. Well water and streams should not be polluted, what happened to the clean water act? It's all about money instead of innocent people getting cancer.

      You can't replace a mountain or fix the health of the people who are injured, you can never replace the streams, fish, wildlife or trees...
