Kennecott seeks Groundwater Permit change

Kennecott filed an amendment letter to the MDNRE  in February seeking modification of a Groundwater Discharge permit.  Details indicate that they would bring the water to the surface and covering it all with 8″ of gravel, two layers of styrafoam board and a 40 ml liner, as opposed to an underground injection.  There will be a public hearing scheduled for March 11th 7:00 at Westwood High School in Ishpeming for interested citizens to ask questions and get more details on the changes.
Here is the link to the actual proposal amendment:
