1501:13-4-08 Hydrologic map and cross-sections.

Each application for a permit shall include:

(A) A hydrologic map which, in addition to the applicable requirements of rules 1501:13-4-09 and 1501:13-4-10 of the Administrative Code, shall be at a scale of not more than five hundred feet to the inch. The hydrologic map shall be certified by a surveyor and, if required pursuant to paragraph (C) of rule 1501:13-4-09 of the Administrative Code, by an engineer. Except as provided in paragraph (B) of this rule, all hydrologic maps shall show the following:

(1) The proposed permit area;

(2) A line identifying the area within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(3) All occupied buildings on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(4) All perennial and intermittent streams on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(5) The location of the coal outcrop on the proposed permit area and the name and number of each coal seam to be mined;

(6) The location of the cross-section drawn to show hydrogeologic information as required under paragraph (D) of this rule;

(7) The location and type of water supply used by the occupant of each building described in paragraph (A)(3) of this rule for the purpose of domestic, agricultural, or industrial use;

(8) All undeveloped springs on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(9) All seepage zones on and within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(10) The location of sampling stations on each stream identified in paragraph (A)(4) of this rule at points just above and below the proposed permit area and the location and elevation of other sampling stations used to gather data on water quality and quantity in the preparation of the permit application;

(11) All underground coal mine entries on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(12) The location of monitoring stations, other than sediment pond outlets, to be monitored during the life of the permit;

(13) All existing water wells on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area;

(14) Any well, well field, reservoir, river, or other water source used for a public water supply on or within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area; and

(15) Any land determined to be eligible for remining.

(B)

(1) For the items listed in paragraphs (A)(3), (A)(4), (A)(8), (A)(9), (A)(11), (A)(13) and (A)(14) of this rule, the chief may require additional information outside the thousand-foot limit to be shown on the map if such identification is necessary based on site-specific conditions.

(2) The items listed in paragraphs (A)(3), (A)(7), (A)(8), (A)(9), (A)(10), and (A)(11) of this rule need not be shown on the hydrologic map when:

(a) They are located beyond an intermittent or perennial stream located within one thousand feet of the proposed permit area; and

(b) The lowest coal seam to be mined is at a higher elevation than such intermittent or perennial stream.

(C) The map symbols used to identify the items described in paragraphs (A)(8) to (A)(14) of this rule shall be highlighted in red on all hydrologic maps.

(D) A cross-section prepared by, or under the direction of an engineer or a professional geologist showing:

(1) The location and extent of subsurface water, if encountered, within the proposed permit or adjacent areas;

(2) All wells, boreholes, piezometers, springs, or other features used to determine the configuration of the water table or potentiometric surface of each aquifer where such wells, boreholes, piezometers, springs, or other items fall on or reasonably close to the line of the cross-section;

(3) Within the permit and adjacent areas, all aquifers and the water table or potentiometric surface of each aquifer above the lowest coal seam to be mined and within the lowest coal seam to be mined if that seam is a water bearing stratum, and each potentially affected water bearing stratum below the lowest coal seam to be mined; and

(4) All coal seams to be mined.
