The Appalachian Energy and Environment Partnership (AEEP) serves as the unified voice of Eastern coalfield watershed groups, working toward remediating the coalfield legacy issues of Acid Mine Drainage (AMD), wastewater contamination of lakes and streams, sedimentation, and flooding.
Funding is typically at the top of the list of needs. AEEP provides information on grant opportunities and funding sources, disseminating relevant information to hundreds of groups in our 8 state service area. We provide informational resources on a variety of topics throughout this website and through regular email newsletters.
Our mission statement, displayed on our home page, provides a more comprehensive description of our role in the Eastern coalfield watershed community.
AEEP is one of several regional roundtables created under President Clinton’s Clean Water Action Program – the only Roundtable that focuses regionally on watershed needs and development. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by its Board of Directors. The Board is comprised of representatives from its service area.
