Act now to stop decades of illegal pollution from the Minntac Tailings Basin. Comment deadline extended to December 23, 2016.
The Minntac Tailings Basin has polluted Minnesota waters in violation of Minnesota laws and the federal Clean Water Act for a quarter of a century. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has failed to do its job and limit Minntac pollution. 

After decades of inaction, WaterLegacy’s petition to withdraw authority to regulate water pollution and a lawsuit, the MPCA has proposed a draft wastewater permit for Minntac tailings pollution. But, this is a weak and inadequate permit that would not require Minntac to comply with either Minnesota surface water quality standards or limits on groundwater pollution.
Please tell the MPCA to hold US Steel accountable today and rewrite the Minntac Tailings Basin permit to control toxic pollution and protect clean water, wild rice, fish, and human health.
