Action Alert: Please send comments!
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has proposed a draft Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for the cleanup of Rise Gold's Centennial M-1 Property. The Centennial site is a historically toxic site that is facing EPA Superfund designation. CEA Foundation / MineWatch SUPPORTS THIS PROJECT and will be commenting on it! It is important that Rise Gold does a good job cleaning up the site. They bought it. They own the mess. They need to clean it up even if the mine project is not approved.
Please lend your voice to the public comments! CEA Foundation/MineWatch supports the cleanup, but wants to see it done better. The Centennial Wetlands are a protected natural resource that are crucial to a functioning watershed. The proposed plan would destroy wetlands that don't need to be damaged.
