Responsible Mining and Energy Workgroup

The newly formed Responsible Mining and Energy Workgroup focuses on efforts to protect coldwater fisheries from the various modes of energy production: coal and hard rock mining, oil and gas drilling, wind, solar and nuclear. The goals of this workgroup are:

  1. Provide a set of useful tools former chapters and councils that find themselves confronted by an extraction or energy project that could have a negative impact on cold water resources.
  2. Work with all stakeholders and interested parties to ensure that all reasonable efforts are made to avoid or mitigate the impacts that extraction and energy project may have on Goldwater resources.
  3. Act as a conduit between TU staff and grassroots membership to provide information and guidance on local and national extraction and every developments.
