The Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands (DAML) works throughout the state’s coal fields to protect the public from health and safety problems caused by mining that occurred prior to 1982, to restore degraded sites to a safe and environmentally stable condition. The division also administers a bond forfeiture reclamation program for coal companies before they start mining. A company's bond may be forfeited if the company fails to mine and reclaim a site to the standards specified in its mining permit.

In addition, DAML administers a water supply replacement program, extending waterlines into areas where drinking water has been contaminated by past mining.
