Justices Allow Dumping of Gold-Mine Waste in Lake

E-mail Print PDF

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday upheld a Bush-era permit to dump millions of tons of gold-mine tailings into Alaska's Lower Slate Lake, a move that even the government admits will wipe out the lake's fish and most other aquatic life.
     On a 6-3 vote, the high court determined that the Army Corps of Engineers - and not the Environmental Protection Agency - had the authority to issue the permits. The ruling overturns the 9th Circuit's decision to vacate the permits on the grounds that they violated the Clean Water Act.

TVNL Comment: Another Bush legacy.
