On June 21, 2001, some members of OVEC and Coal River Mountain Watch toured the massive 645 acre Brushy Fork coal slurry impoundment.
Brushy Fork Slurry Impoundment, operated by Marfolk Coal, a subsidiary of Massey Energy, is located in extreme westernmost Raleigh County, West Virginia. Brushy Fork is a tributary of Little Marsh Fork, that flows into Marsh Fork, comprising part of the headwaters of the Coal River upstream of Whitesville.
