Minnesota DNR The plan for the NorthMet mine site at year 20, when extraction operations are projected to end.

Rain drains down under 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The torrential rains had proved transformational. Last month's heavy downpour had enveloped many city streets in multiple layers of water. Resembling Venetian canals, the roads had turned a dangerously dirty mix of storm water, sewage and open manholes! Disaster lurked at every step. The city's underground drainage system lay thoroughly exposed, yet again. Its old, corroded and clogged pipelines leaking, the network had nothing to defend itself from the marauding flood waters. Total collapse was precariously close! But the danger ran deeper, a reality that came out starkly two days after the rains. Two labourers, in their attempt to repair a damaged pipeline, slipped into a manhole in Nagawara and died instantly. They had inhaled the toxic fumes that billowed out of the manhole. The reasons are not hard to seek at all. In disrepair for years, abused by both industrial and residential units, the crumbling underground pipeline network today lies in a shambles. Tons of solid waste particles, electronic ...
