Close the loopholes in the Clean Water Act that allow massive mines such as Pebble to dump tons of toxic waste directly into our nation’s rivers, lakes and wetlands.

Hard rock mining is among the most destructive industries in the country with a history of polluting public lands, harming wildlife and public health, and poisoning community drinking water. The fragile, wildlife-rich headwaters of Bristol Bay are the last place we should be allowing open pit mining.

I hope the EPA shares my concerns about clean water and the impacts of mining waste discharges. Please exercise your leadership to stop the Pebble Mine and close the mining loopholes so our nation’s waters cannot be used as dump sites for industrial mining.

Continuing to pollute our waterways, land and wildlife only serves to bring about the guaranteed destruction of life as we know it on this planet. We are stewards of this planet and must honor its fragility to preserve the planet and our own existence. It is our duty to be committed to sustainable living ensuring a future for the generations to come.

We really appreciate EPA taking a “hard look” at this proposal and listening to the people most affected – the residents, the fishermen, and the tribes.

I sincerely hope that you take into consideration what was said at these meetings when determining whether to invoke the Section 404C authority. We need the EPA on this one more than ever!

This is proven by its abundant fisheries reproduction. Protecting water quality is up to all of us. We all have a job of keeping our eyes and ears open to on the ground threats we see and making the appropriate contacts to officials who can do something. To many regulations with no manpower to back them up.
Seems like the Risk to benefit ratio is pretty high on this proposal, hope it sinks.
