The meeting will be March 24-25.  March 24 will deal with the Klamath.
March 25 there will be an update on the mill which will probably happen in the afternoon.  Public comment will be allowed.  We will find out whether we can comment during public comment period which will happen soon after the 9 AM starting time or if we will have to wait for the update (probably in the afternoon).  Public Hearings on the permit for the mill will be in June, but that meeting may not be in Eureka, so this is our chance to be heard in person. The Balloon Track update will follow the mill update.

It looks like the mill is being moved toward opening as is with the promise that they will build a treatment facility that will take 2-3 years to build.  That means toxic chemicals in the ocean for 2-3 years.  We will all suffer if this happens.  Can the earth continue to take all this abuse?  animals?  the ecosystem?  We need to pay attention!

2-3 years is a long time to have toxic sludge dumped into the water. And if they take longer? And if they don't get around to it at all? It wouldn't be the first time.
