The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is failing to regulate mine pollution or reduce toxic mercury contamination. In response, WaterLegacy will use advocacy, partnership with tribes, and citizen engagement to compel the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect Minnesota waters from mining pollution and to support new tribal authority to protect and restore reservation waters harmed by upstream contaminants.
