The Environmental Protection Agency has used a provision of the Clean Water Act to block the project, Pebble Mine, and similar operations from the Bristol Bay watershed in Southeast Alaska.

Our first Pebble post was January 9th, 2007, and since that time, we have shared 414 additional posts on Pebble and protecting Bristol Bay. You can check out the archive of Pebble posts from when we were on the Squarespace platform.

While the state says it will challenge this EPA ruling in court, and a future administration could reverse the ruling, for all intents and purposes Pebble is dead.
