In case anybody has not heard this bad news: the Army Corps has reverted to its abdication of oversight of the proposed mine sight, throwing the permitting hot potato back to GA-EPD.
Further bad news in Twin Pines’ own press release is that former EPD director Harold Reheis is now advising Twin Pines.
Please continue to ask Georgia officals to stop this strip mine far too close to the Okefenokee Swamp, which is the headwaters of the Suwannee and St Marys Rivers.
And there’s an election going on. Ask each candidate their position on protecting the Okefenokee Swamp, and vote accordingly.
