Perils of In-situ leach (ISL) uranium mining, both economic and environmental. Bill to try to protect South Dakota water against dangers of ISL. It asks that mining companies prove that neighboring aquifers will not be contaminated and to prove that they can restore the groundwater to its previous state (which by the way is considered impossible). The water is currently at risk due to the proposed Dewey-Burdock uranium mine. Short but important 15 minute podcast.

HB 1193 is up for a quick hearing this Tuesday, February 11. In an on-going effort to ensure South Dakota’s groundwater quality isn’t permanently degraded, we’re doing everything we can to get the word out about what the Dewey-Burdock Project really promises for South Dakota. And each day, it becomes more and more clear it promises pennies on the dollar and a huge public risk – all for the private profit of a few foreign investors.

You can download our podcast, which explains a bit more about our bill and a lot more about the reality of what South Dakota will reap for its risk, right here: Protect Our Water, VOTE YES on HB 1193.

The hearing is at 7:45am CT in room 464 of the Capitol building. Contact us (action@dakotarural.org) if you are interested in coming…
