Comment to the EPA for Bristol Bay by May 31st

The EPA's Assessment finds that even without a catastrophe or series of harmful spills, up to 87 miles of salmon streams and up to 4,300 acres of salmon habitat will be destroyed by mining the deposit. That alone should be enough to stop this project, but add in the unsupportable notion that up to 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste will be stored, treated and monitored "in perpetuity," and it becomes clear that action is required to protect Bristol Bay now.

And be entered in a drawing for a trip to Bristol Bay, it will only take a moment of your time.
