MSHA Handbook: Impoundment and Refuse Pile Inventory – Summary of Input Information Mobile App
The MSHA Handbook: Impoundment and Refuse Pile Inventory – Summary of Input Information mobile app is part of the procedures for the inspection of coal mine impoundments and procedures for review of impoundment plans at sites inspected by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
How does it work?
The app provides an explanation of the impoundment-related information to be input into the IRPI. The IRPI input screen is accessed through MSIS, and the fields listed below are displayed. The information for the IRPI should be obtained from approved plans, annual reports, district records, field inspection notes, and the Impoundment Data Sheet. Note that for impoundments under construction, the information in the IRPI is intended to reflect the impoundment conditions that actually exist in the field at the time the data is updated (or the last known or reported conditions), not the conditions for which the impoundment is approved to be constructed.
