UEC is claiming that Goliad's drinking water is currently not fit for human consumption and that the company should be allowed to mine and contaminate it. Read about DROUGHT and why we should conserve our water quality.

Requirements to gain an exemption to mine in a drinking water aquifer are defined in 40CFR, Chapter 146.4 which reads --

"A portion of an aquifer may be exempted if it does not currently serve as a source of drinking water, it cannot now and will not in the future serve as a source of drinking water because it is mineral bearing and it is so contaminated that it would be economically or technologically impractical to render that water fit for human consumption."
