Title: Agencies must establish clear and enforceable reclamation standards
Text: Legacy: Doing it Right: "Full Reclamation: To ensure complete reclamation of land disturbed by methane production, state and federal agencies must establish clear and enforceable reclamation standards. Full reclamation of all disturbed lands should be a standing provision in a model surface use agreement, and landowners should make it a bottom-line request when leasing their minerals."
