Earth Matters co-host and director of the Upper Gila Watershed Alliance Donna Stevens discusses mining and water quality issues in Grant County with Gila Resources Information Project Executive Director and Earth Matters co-host Allyson Siwik.
Topics discussed include: the NM Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Sept. 28 in the appeal of the Copper Rule. Freeport-McMoRan Inc., owner and operator of the Chino, Tyrone and Cobre mines, is having financial difficulties with significant implications for clean up of its mine sites should the company default; and the NM Environment Department is continuing its efforts to weaken water quality protections and public participation provisions under the state’s Water Quality Act.
