Essar Steel Supplemental EIS

reviewing and updating environmental impact statements (EIS)
A supplemental EIS was conducted according to MEPA, a state-only environmental review, for proposed modifications to the Essar Steel Minnesota mining and steel pellet manufacturing project. Modifications principally affected air and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Updated evaluations entailed: air, mercury, and GHG emissions, risk screening for ecological & human health receptors, and associated mitigations measures. Hydrologic analyses were performed to assess potential groundwater seepage from the tailings basin and downstream water quality changes relevant to natural stands of wild rice.
