Begich, EPA trying to do right thing

Posted: March 8, 2013 - 12:40pm

Sen. Mark Begich deserves a lot of credit for his recent comments on the EPA study of the proposed Pebble Mine.

The two Homer residents who wrote about the issue last week completely hit the nail on the head: The foreign companies who want to build Pebble should be thankful that the EPA is analyzing this project. The Bristol Bay watershed is one of the most dynamic, seismological and hydrological networks in the world; if their project won't qualify for the permits, we should all know that now before any more time is wasted.

Bristol Bay's fishery employs more than 14,000 people, many of whom live here in Homer. Please thank the EPA and Sen. Begich for doing the right thing to protect Alaskan jobs.
