Authorizations to Proceed
Tribal and state partners request and receive approval before beginning construction on a reclamation project with the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE).
The process in which project(s) are requested and approved is called the Authorization to Proceed (ATP).
Once an ATP is issued, partners have approval to proceed with construction on a specific reclamation project.
