EPA starts veto process for Pebble mine

U.S. EPA announced the start today of determining whether to veto the massive Pebble copper and gold mining project in southeastern Alaska. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said Pebble would be "one of the largest mines on Earth" and "have a significant and irreversible negative impact on the Bristol Bay watershed and its salmon-bearing water." The start of EPA work on a possible veto is notable because it comes before mine developers submit a Clean Water Act dredge-and-fill permit application to the Army Corps of Engineers.
