"This is the first time ever for this kind of an investigation in Minnesota,” - Paula Maccabee, WaterLegacy

Responding to a Summer 2015 petition from WaterLegacy, The federal Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to investigate the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's failure to enforce the Clean Water Act and control mining pollution. The EPA has authority under federal regulations to remove a state’s authority to regulate water pollution if state actions fail to comply with and enforce the law.
