Aimee Keys (Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and Reclamation Chief) has said NDEP expects to grant Lithium Nevada’s water permit with a stipulation about mining below the water table. So NDEP is planning on issuing the permit before the public commenting period has even begun. Meanwhile, an NDEP employee who has worked in NDEP’s air and water side for 25 years cannot recall NDEP having denied one air and water permit in 25 years.
Come to the Orovada Community Center on Tuesday, May 25 at 6 pm to tell NDEP and Lithium Nevada what you think of their plans to destroy Thacker Pass, pollute water, and poison air. Then get ready to stop them.
This will be strictly an in-person community meeting, nothing online?
Yes, in-person. It might be live streamed by one of the attendees, but that wouldn’t allow interaction from the online audience.
OK, thanks for the quick reply. We won’t be able to make it in person, but we’ll be with you in spirit and looking for a favorable outcome. Good luck!
