August 12th Guest Lecture: Scientific Review of Wild Rice/Sulfate Research, presented by Kurt Anderson

Cook County Higher Education Guest Lecture Series 2014

Date/Time: Tuesday, August 12, 7pm

Title:  Scientific Review of Wild Rice/Sulfate Research, presented by Kurt Anderson

As the Polymet copper-nickel mining project advances through Minnesota's regulatory machinery, questions about potential effects of acid mine drainage on area water quality in general, and wild rice in particular, remain a critical point in how a mining permit may be structured. This presentation will focus on the impact of sulfide mining on wild rice, and also address the overall impact of tighter environmental controls on other businesses and industries.

Kurt Anderson is the Manager of Environmental & Land Management at Minnesota Power. He formerly worked as a toxicologist, and performed toxicity studies on wild rice for the MPCA He is also an avid outdoorsman, and collects wild rice each fall with his family near Brookston, MN.
