Alaskans continue to advocate for the Taku

Rivers Without Borders was very pleased to see a letter (see attached) from the Sitka Alaska based Seafood Producers Cooperative calling on the U.S. Secretary of State, the EPA, and Alaska’s senators to continue pressing Canada and British Columbia for action on the long polluting Tulsequah Chief mine. BC declared the ongoing acid mine drainage into the Taku unacceptable more than six years ago, but the Cooperative, like other fishing related interests dependent on the Taku, is concerned progress toward the remediation is slow moving and needs a boost. For our part, Rivers Without Borders thanks the Seafood producers Cooperative and so many others who have been standing up for the Taku, the transboundary regions top salmon producing river system.
