In Case You Missed It....

On the off-chance your inbox is chock full of items of interest and you've missed the message from TU, we're passing this along as a reminder....ACT!!

Trout Unlimited
On Friday [July 18], EPA released their Proposed Determination that places restrictions on large-scale mining of the Pebble deposit in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Thanks to you, and thousands of American's across the country, we've reached an important milestone for protecting Bristol Bay. But, we need your help once again to push these protections over the finish line – please take action today and tell EPA you support Clean Water Act protections for Bristol Bay.

Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to one of the last great salmon fisheries on the planet. The salmon, wildlife, people and fishing jobs of this beautiful and productive region are threatened by the proposed Pebble gold and copper mine. If built, Pebble could become the largest mine in North America.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to stop this mine and protect Bristol Bay's fish and jobs through the Clean Water Act.

Take action now by commenting on the proposed determination. Ask EPA to finalize determination as soon as possible and put Clean Water Act 404(c) protections in place for Bristol Bay.
