Mine Subsidence is an issue on the minds of all that live and work in Southern Illinois. As the coal mines of the 1800’s continue to age, the likelihood of subsidence increases. The evening’s presentations will include Metro-East mining history, an overview of mining, mine collapse, surface subsidence, subsidence damage and remediation.  In addition, information will be presented on the Illinois Emergency Program and on Mine Subsidence Insurance.

The presentation is free of charge and open to all. The Collinsville Memorial Library Center is located at 408 W. Main St., Collinsville, IL 62234.
