EPA Announces Next Steps in Process to Protect Bristol Bay

The EPA just announced a May 31, 2022 deadline for considering whether to permanently protect Bristol Bay and stop the Pebble Mine.

Today, EPA announced a timeframe for the agency to consider new information available to determine the next steps in the Bristol Bay Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404(c) process for the Pebble Deposit (Pebble Mine) in Southwest Alaska. If a CWA 404(c) determination is finalized, it would help protect waters over the long term that are essential to commercial, subsistence, and recreational fisheries, and other activities that support Alaska Natives and communities in the state.
