It seems that the waters of Bristol Bay are being threatened by the proposal of a Pebble Mine. The Pebble Mine would affect the local Salmon fishery as well as the wildlife in the area and jobs.
From what i've read, a Pebble Mine would produce tons of waste which is stored and ends up affecting the lands and streams by polluting the waters. This Pebble Mine being proposed on Bristol Bay would be the largest in the area and would produce more waste.
