Sierra Club Files Suit on Clean Water Act Violation.

Juneau, Alaska -- The Sierra Club, Lynn Canal Conservation, and the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council filed suit today against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for violating the Clean Water Act. The groups are challenging the issuing of a permit to Coeur d’Alene Mines of Idaho that would allow the deposit of 4.5 million tons of chemically processed mine waste into a freshwater alpine lake.

I have spoken with Sierra Club and was told that U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit has no chance to stand ,specially in 9-Circuit court of Appeals which is very good in upholding environmental law.
It is just an another attempt by right-winger to make money on our land .

Alaska Mines and Wilderness Lakes....

What better place to deposit Mine tailings than in the thousands of Lakes that dot the landside of the "Great Land". The Bushies have designated certain Mine Tailings to be "Fill" and are busy designating several pristine widerness Lakes in Alaska as sites suitable for filling!!
I don't make this stuff up there really are some Idiots out there in the Beltway that do not have a bloody thing to do with the security of our Homeland!
