USACE’s FEIS

The Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), published in July of 2020 by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), has been identified by NAK as the most accurate and objective assessment of the Pebble Project. The EIS reported that the Pebble Project would facilitate significant socioeconomic contributions to the communities it would operate in, with no realistic detriment to the water and wildlife.

Negative Record of Decision

Despite this, the USACE issued a negative Record of Decision (ROD) in November 2020 in regard to the Pebble Project. Since then, Pebble has commenced an administrative appeal of the decision, citing the USACE’s own EIS report from earlier in the year. The new EPA administrator is being urged to protect Pebble’s rights that entitle it to due process under the law, with claims that a negative decision is both inconsistent with the evidence and, therefore, contrary to the law.

Definitive Pros and Uncertain Cons

Improvements in health, education, and infrastructure are just some of the benefits associated with ‎the Pebble Project, with operations forecasted to result in lower costs of living for local residents. ‎While the USACE has insinuated the diminishing of subsistence activities, and an adverse effect on ‎water quality and waterlife (among other post-closure detriments), NAK argues these claims are ‎insubstantial. The company challenges these claims as being inconsistent with EIS findings and propose ‎that post-closure issues are less detriments than they are returns to normal baseline conditions.‎

RFA Accepted

The RFA submitted by Pebble has been accepted by the USACE as of February 2021, and a Review officer has been appointed to oversee the appeal process. While the process usually takes 90 days, the USACE anticipates Pebble’s appeal taking longer because of the complexity of issues and the sheer volume of relevant materials.
