It’s official - the EPA has finalized 404(c) Clean Water Act Protections for the headwaters of Bristol Bay! The EPA’s Final Determination outlines prohibitions and restrictions that will prevent a large-scale mine from being developed at the Pebble deposit. The fight for these protections has been long and arduous and it is because of the decades of hard work and dedication of Tribes, commercial fish harvesters, and people of the region that these protections have been put in place.
