Mining: Preserving Neighborhoods & the Environment from Impacts

We help citizens protect their home, neighborhood, and environment from the impact of poorly conceived mining operations.  Whether you're concerned about an existing or proposed mine, we can help in two ways. 

First, we'd be delighted to answer any specific questions you have regarding a mine.  Just give us a call at 410-654-3021. Advice by phone is always available free of charge to those seeking to preserve their home and neighborhood from harm.

Second, we can carry out an Initial Strategy Analysis (ISA) to determine the quickest, least expensive options for resolving your concerns.  Generally, the ISA cost begins at $1,000 and can be completed in two weeks.  Two examples of mining ISA's can be viewed by clicking the following link:

If a mining operation has been proposed for a site near your home or in the watershed of a stream, lake, or other aquatic resource you value, then we urge you to thoroughly evaluate the potential impacts and to demand that no permits be issued until all impacts are fully resolved.  Following are some of the more common impacts of mining:

CEDS has prepared a Project Evaluation Checklist which allows you to take a first look at many of the impacts listed above.  Detail on how to review a project for these potential impacts can be found in our free 300-page book How To Win Land Development Issues

CEDS is a nationwide network of attorneys, planners, environmental scientists, traffic engineers, political strategists, fundraisers, and other professionals.  We help people with concerns about all types of mining operations.  We also help those living near existing and closed mines to reduce facility impacts. 

To learn how we can help with the mine or quarry of concern to you, just give us a call at 410-654-3021.  Advice by phone is always available free of charge to those seeking to preserve their home and neighborhood from harm. You can also email us at
