California Suction Dredging Update
July 2012 by Scott HarnAnother California Assembly member, Jared Huffman, is attempting to ban dredging in the state on a more permanent basis.
The fire started early October 4, destroying the Bureau of Land Management office on the edge of town within minutes.
Hennis claims that months later and without his permission, the EPA built a $2.3 million water treatment facility on the property and the agency continues treating water and storing waste there.
Landowners complained that mineral mining on or near their property could damage property values while leaving them without a cut of potential profits.
