The U.S. Environmental “Protection” Agency just struck a deal with a foreign mining company to remove Clean Water Act protections for some of our nation’s most important salmon habitat in Bristol Bay, Alaska. The mine developers plan to build an open pit mine, putting at risk fish, wildlife and the livelihoods of people who depend on a this area.
Even without a spill, mining the Pebble deposit will destroy 94 miles of salmon streams and more than 5,000 acres of wetlands, lakes, and ponds in the pristine Bristol Bay watershed.
Urge the EPA and Trump Administration to protect Bristol Bay from the proposed Pebble Mine.
