United States v. Reserve Mining Co.

Citation: 6 ELR 20628
No. No. 5-72-Civ.-19, 417 F. Supp. 789/9 ERC 1001/(D. Minn., 05/08/1976) Termination of discharge ordered

Following the defendant's and state of Minnesota's failure to agree on an on-land waste disposal site, Chief Judge Devitt orders Reserve and its parent corporations to cease dumping taconite tailings into Lake Superior by July 7, 1977. This order follows the court of appeals' mandate, 5 ELR 20596, 20616, that Reserve must stop its discharges one year from "final administrative determination" that no acceptable on-land disposal site can be found.

Counsel are listed at 6 ELR 20481.
