Six weeks more from the Army Corps, less than the two or four months requested by various parties. That’s still better than no extension for public comments on the re-application by Twin Pines Minerals, LLC, to mine far too close to the Okefenokee Swamp, the headwaters of the Suwannee and St. Marys Rivers, above the Floridan Aquifer.
Plus, before the new comment deadline of May 28, 2020:
The Savannah District will hold a virtual Public Meeting for the Twin Pines project on May 13, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT. The meeting will consist of a formal presentation followed by a question and answer session. The meeting will be recorded and published to the Savannah District public website.
