Stop the EPA’s Pebble Power Grab Stand Up for Due Process for Resource Projects in Alaska

On July 18th, the EPA opened a 60-day public comment period soliciting input about their intention to preemptively place restrictions on development of a mine at Pebble. The EPA’s actions, a first in the 43-year history of the Clean Water Act, amount to a de facto veto of a mine at Pebble. Please take time to let the EPA know their actions are not appropriate nor should anything be done by the agency at this time – other than wait for the Pebble Partnership to present a detailed mine plan, file for permits, and initiate the thorough and objective National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The public comment window closes on September 19th, 2014. Your comments are needed and appreciated. You can comment directly via www.AKStopEPA.com . You can participate in a public meeting in Alaska. Or, you can send a letter to the EPA directly. Details about how you can participate as well as suggested messages can be found by clicking on the link below: TPS_EPA Proposed Determination AUG...
