Pebble has applied for one of the major permits they’ll need to mine in Bristol Bay, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is fast-tracking the environmental review.
On June 29, Governor Bill Walker weighed in with a letter to the Army Corps of Engineers – the Agency in charge of reviewing Pebble’s first major permit. Gov. Walker requested that the Corps suspend Pebble’s permitting process until the missing information is updated in the permit application. Meanwhile, Alaska’s Congressional delegation remains silent. Please CLICK HERE to send a letter asking the delegation to listen to Alaskans who have said repeatedly that they want Bristol Bay’s irreplaceable salmon fishery protected and call for this process to be stopped.
Please stay tuned for other opportunities to take action to protect Bristol Bay!
