Water is among the top concerns for Vermilion and Champaign County residents facing the proposed Bulldog Coal Mine. The mining company is seeking up to 1/2 a million gallons of water per day during the initial phase of mining from the Village of Homer. That’s over four times as much water as the entire Village uses in one day. Where will the water come from to wash the coal, and what will happen to the polluted water once it’s used by the mine?
