Stage is set for Mulberry mining showdown

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Surface Mining Commission has set a date and time for a public hearing on a petition to declare lands near a Birmingham Water Works Board drinking intake as unsuitable for mining.

The hearing is set for Tuesday July 9th, from 1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.  at the Community Health System Building in Jasper.

Opponents of the mine want to weigh in on the issue, but they think the mid-afternoon time will prevent working people from being able to attend.

Hear more on their concerns, the response from the ASMC Director and the details about the big picture tonight on CBS 42 News at 10.
