In a move that WaterLegacy Advocacy Director and Counsel, Paula Maccabee, called "both outrageous and a clear violation of the Clean Water Act", the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has stopped doing ANY work to update long-expired mining permits that don’t require mines to comply with Minnesota water quality standards.

Minnesota’s failure to control mining water pollution is why WaterLegacy filed a petition under the Clean Water Act to remove the MPCA’s authority and why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched an investigation of Minnesota’s failure to control water pollution. Is MPCA kicking a hornet’s nest?
