Local Washington State Governments Oppose Skagit Headwaters Mining

“The Skagit Council of Governments on Wednesday passed a resolution stating that it has “grave concern” about the proposed mining.

Earlier in May, the Skagit Watershed Council, city of Burlington and the towns of La Conner and Hamilton passed similar resolutions asking British Columbia to deny the proposal and permanently protect the land. The property is called the “donut hole” because of its location between two provincial parks.

The Concrete Town Council is set to consider its own resolution Monday against mining in the donut hole, which contains the headwaters of the Skagit River watershed.”
