Today is Rosemont Copper Mine objection deadline

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Opponents of the proposed Rosemont Copper Mine only have hours left.

Today is the deadline to file objections to a Forest Service decision supporting a modified version of the Rosemont Mine Plan.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to object to the plan. They focused on the Cienega Creek Watershed and concerns about surface and groundwater flows.

After the objection period ends, the Forest Service can take several more weeks to assess the public input before releasing a final decision.
