State board allows Rapid City "grave concern" resolution into formal record


A resolution passed by the Rapid City Council concerning uranium mining at Edgemont will be allowed into the formal record.   

At a special board meeting Tuesday, City Attorney Joel Landeen informed the council that the State Board of Minerals and Environment reversed its previous decision.

Last week, the board denied the inclusion of a resolution expressing "grave concern" about the mining process and the potential risk to the Madison Aquifer - which supplies the city.
