THANK YOU!

Thanks to your hard work, conservation and environmental groups across Minnesota exceeded our goal of 50,000 comments on Polymet's Mine Plan (SDEIS). WaterLegacy supporters alone submitted more than 5,000 comments.

 Read WaterLegacy's official comments on the plan here. 

In 2010, the US Environmental Agency (EPA) gave PolyMet's previous attempt (DEIS) a failing grade. Four years later on 3/13/14, the EPA rating for the SDEIS showed many areas where the analysis was still incomplete. These include failure to model elemental mercury or characterize risks from methylmercury, failure to support the claim that 90% of all seepage will be captured, failure to quantitatively assess indirect impacts on wetlands, failure to show the least environmentally damaging practical alternative, and failure to provide information on the length of treatment or financial assurance.
