Stop Deregulation of Minnesota Mining Pollution
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has proposed new (class 3 & 4) rules to deregulate major ion pollution – namely, the pollution discharged from taconite and copper-nickel mining. These new rules would allow mining that would kill fish, increase mercury contamination of fish, increase algae blooms in once-clear lakes, destroy tribal Treaty resources, and damage economies based on fishing, recreation, and tourism. MPCA’s deregulation rules would hit the hardest in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters and Lake Superior watersheds.
