PolyMet draft environmental review released

After much delay, the draft Environmental Impact Statement for the first sulfide mining proposal in Minnesota has been released by the Department of Natural Resources.

Conservation organizations, including the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness and many supporters of “Precious Waters,” are going to be studying the document closely. Look for additional information about what is contained in the DEIS in the near future and resources to help you speak up and take action to submit your own comments to the DNR when the public comment period begins on Nov. 2.
