Border News Roundup: Mining Permit Legal Battles and Snow Conditions

This week on the Border News Roundup editor Marshall Helmberger fills us in on:

  • An investigation launched by Rep. Betty McCollum into comments that were collected by EPA but were not submitted to the MPCA and should have been part of the permitting process for Polymet  
  • The Indian Bands Taskforce released a report on status of area wild rice beds and the effects that sulfates have been having on them.
  • Legal challenges to the new waste water permits that were issued to MinnTac.  Both Environmental groups and US Steel have filed challenges.
  • Conditions of area trails and a friendly reminder that ice conditions are a little unpredictable to be careful on the ice.

Tune in Friday Mornings for the Border News Roundup.
