U.S. EPA still finds that “the proposed project will have a substantial and unacceptable impact on aquatic resources of national importance.”
That’s about “the permit application submitted by Twin Pines Minerals, LLC” for a titanium strip mine. “The proposed 2,414-acre mine area lies in proximity to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), and the potential secondary effects of the mine on the NWR have not been demonstrated by the permit applicant.”
You, too, can still comment to the USACE, and all comments they receive before the Corps announces a decision can be used in any potential lawsuits.
