EPA Grants Permits To Uranium Project in South Dakota

The Environmental Protection Agency is awarding permits for a proposed uranium mine in South Dakota.

But the mine, already about 15 years in the making, still faces more hurdles.

The proposed location is 13 miles northwest of Edgemont. That’s on the remote plains at the southwestern edge of the Black Hills, near the map dots of Dewey and Burdock.

The Black Hills Clean Water Alliance issued a statement Wednesday, opposing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) issuance of Underground Injection Control and Safe Drinking Water Act aquifer exemption permits to Powertech (USA) Inc., Tuesday night.
