The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has set the schedule for nine meetings in April when it will accept public comments on what should be included in an upcoming Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Pebble mine.
You may attend a meeting and give your comment to a court reporter, submit on paper, or submit online at the Corps’ Pebble Project EIS site.
Some meetings allow for public comment by microphone. However, the Corps’ has stated that will not be available for the Anchorage, Dillingham or Homer meetings due to anticipated large turnout.
A Yup’ik translator will be available to help members of the public submit their comments.
