PolyMet Mining Committed to Extensive Regulatory Process

Better In Our Back Yard (BIOBY) is pleased celebrate another win for PolyMet and Minnesota’s industrial sector. The Ramsey County District Court found no irregularities in procedure when the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) issued a water quality permit for the NorthMet copper nickel-precious metals project.

PolyMet Mining, Inc. is committed to following the extensive regulatory process. BIOBY has every confidence that PolyMet and the MPCA followed the correct procedures to make decisions regarding the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.

Although opposition groups will continue to look for discrepancies in an effort to delay the process, BIOBY trusts the courts will continue to rule in favor of Minnesota’s regulatory agencies, and in favor of responsible industrial projects.
