Final EIS and Record of Decision pushed back 90 days
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers determined last month that it would need to extend the federal permitting timeline for the Pebble project by 90 days. A Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is due in late June/early July, with a Record of Decision following in Fall 2020.
In November and December 2019 the Corps held six days of technical meetings with cooperating agencies and AECOM, its third-party contractor. During those discussions, the Corps identified additional refinements that would be needed.
