Water restrictions proposed in Alaska House could stop Pebble Mine

The second round of legislative hearings for House Bill 134 was held in Naknek yesterday. Almost 30 people from around Bristol Bay Borough and Lake and Pen Borough spoke about the bill — which would restrict water usage in the Bristol Bay watershed. It would prevent many large-scale developments, like the Pebble Mine, but it also could restrict smaller commercial enterprises in the future.
