A Big Win for the Boise River
Idaho Conservation League
On July 19, 2012, the U.S. District Court for the State of Idaho issued a Memorandum of Decision imposing a $2 million penalty to be paid by Atlanta Gold for their violations of the Clean Water Act. Additionally, the court ordered Atlanta Gold to implement measures to come into compliance with their NPDES permit. This is a big win for the Boise river, Idaho and the Pacific Northwest.
