As proposed federal cuts of more than a quarter of its total budget loom over the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the impact on western Pennsylvania will be felt in both its abandoned mines and busy classrooms.

One of the biggest concerns for the region related to a possible cut in the EPA budget is how it will affect the remediation of polluted sites across the state, especially in western Pennsylvania, where coal, natural gas and other energy production has resulted in a number of such sites, according to a senior official of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.
