Contact your City Councilors. In February, 2018, the City of Carlton passed a "Resolution in Support of a Moratorium on Copper-Nickel Sulfide Mining in the St. Louis River Watershed". Check it out https://www.duluthforcleanwater.org/city-of-carlton-mn-moratorium-resolution/ Please review and share with your own city councilors. And, ask them to support an Evidentiary hearing on PolyMet email@example.com
Call Duluth Mayor Larson and ask her: Does she agree that our stake in this matter as a Downstream community is important? Have Duluthians, including her, seen an emergency response plan? Do we adequately understand long-term cumulative health impacts, including to mercury-susceptible newborns? Please call Mayor Larson at 218-730-5230 or email via http://www.duluthmn.gov/mayor.
Send your Comment to the DNR on the PolyMet Draft Permits. We recommend one of these portals: MCEA, Water Legacy, Friends of the BWCA. Pick a portal and tell the regulators that the PolyMet proposal is TOO risky for Minnesota, especially downstream communities who have not been adequately considered.
