On October 29, 2021, the courts officially put the protection of Bristol Bay back into the hands of the Environmental Protection Agency's  404(c) process. It’s time to get ready to get our voices heard.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act, has the power to veto Pebble Mine. We need immediate protections for those who depend on Bristol Bay. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Environmental Protection Agency have made it clear that  Pebble Mine will damage Bristol Bay forever. 

The people of Bristol Bay have been fighting to protect their home for two decades. The EPA owes it to them to act with urgency and protect generations of salmon and those who rely on them.

Starting no later than May 31st, the EPA will be accepting comments to consider PERMANENT protections for Bristol Bay. We will be working with folks like you to make sure more Alaskans are heard than ever before to end this struggle and see to it that Pebble Mine will never happen.

Our Leaders Must Take Action to Protect Bristol Bay

It is time for our elected leaders in Congress and in Alaska to pass legislation that will protect the Bristol Bay watershed forever. Such legislation should ensure that mining projects that would harm Bristol Bay and that Pebble Mine can never be built. 

HISTORY:

In 2018, Trump pressured the EPA to drop protections for Bristol Bay. 

In 2020,  Pebble Executives were caught on tape bragging about a larger mine footprint than was disclosed.
