FROM AMERICAN RIVERS: THE SMITH RIVER

December 1, 2016

THE SOUL OF THE SMITH

Today, our friends at American Rivers premiered this video about what, for many Montanans and conservation advocates, has become an area of great concern.

Montana’s renowned Smith River is threatened by a proposed underground copper mine along and underneath Sheep Creek, one of its major headwaters tributaries. If the mine is built, it has significant potential to degrade the Smith’s water quality. It could also destroy a treasured wild trout fishery through acid mine drainage, contamination with toxic heavy metals, nutrient pollution, and drying up critical fish habitat.
