PolyMet mine water could flow northward, toward BWCA


After months of behind-the-scenes debate, state and federal regulators have conceded for the first time that some potentially polluted water from Minnesota’s first proposed copper-nickel mine could flow north toward the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

As a result, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is urging state officials to disclose that possibility and propose a solution in the final version of the 10-year-old environmental review of the controversial project, which is due out later this year.
