  •  The Corps is a construction agency (6+ / 0-)

    The Corps has the competency to assess dam safety, but they have the wrong mission and the wrong skill sets for assessing environmental impacts.

    The COE shouldn't be assigned to assess the environmental impacts of mining. An organization that's into development shouldn't be acting as a regulator.

    We need new legislation to remove the COE from it's oversight role. Clearly, the COE has failed to enforce the law.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
