The Iron Ore Alliance joined Minnesota’s range delegation, local officials, the Iron Mining Association, chambers of commerce, and others for a pre-hearing rally on October 24 to urge the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to consider all of the facts and consequences before making any decision on a sulfate water quality standard.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s (MPCA) proposed new water quality standard could have a devastating impact for families on the Iron Range and throughout Minnesota. It isn’t based on modern science, isn’t proven to protect wild rice, and would cause major job losses.
We’re asking the MPCA to consider all of the facts and consequences before making a decision on a sulfate water quality standard. Here are some ways you can get involved as well.
