Western Energy Company Rosebud Coal Mine Area F Expansion Project

Welcome to the homepage for the Western Energy Company (WECo) Rosebud Coal Mine Area F Expansion Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The purpose of this website is to provide up-to-date EIS-related information to the public and other interested parties. Here you will be able to view and download all documents relating to the EIS as they become available to the public. For more information about this project see About the Project. The Final EIS is now available for review and can be found in the Document Library.
