Discharges into the Levisa Fork. Prescribes the size of a mixing zone for the discharge of salty mine water into the Levisa Fork or its tributaries. Anyone who violates the mixing zone standard would be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. The bill requires that any discharge permit that conflicts with this mixing zone standard for the Levisa Fork River or its tributaries be promptly amended to comply with the standard established in the bill. The bill also prohibits the issuance or maintaining of a permit or certificate allowing the discharge or dumping of PCBs upon the banks of or into the Levisa Fork. This is emergency legislation.
