You’ve probably seen today’s hot conservation news about Bristol Bay already but if not here it is: the Environmental Protection Agency announced this morning the initiation of action under the EPA’s Clean Water Act Section 404(c) authorities.
"Far from an immediate death blow to the mining project, the good news is that today’s actions unquestionably raise the bar far higher for the mine developers and will drive more scrutiny of the monstrosity that could be the Pebble Mine." Mark Mcglothlin
There are several steps in the Clean Water Act Section 404(c) review process, and public involvement opportunities are part of the process.

Good Work to ALL involved!
