CHICAGO (AP) – Three environmental groups are asking state regulators to take away a central Illinois mine’s wastewater discharge permit.

Prairie Rivers Network, the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club and the Environmental Law & Policy Center are appealing a new permit recently granted to the Industry Mine. The groups say in their filing this week with the Illinois Pollution Control Board that the mine has more than 600 violations of the permit’s terms.
