Eau Claire (WQOW) - The debate about a proposed iron ore mine in northern Wisconsin always seems to come back to two things:  the impact on the economy vs. the environment.  As WQOW News 18 examines Gogebic Taconite's plans, we're hearing what supporters and opponents say they stand to gain or lose depending on the fate of that mine.

(This is the first story in a WQOW News 18 series called, "Mine of Information.")

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Frank Koehn fights to protect the natural waters and habitat of this region.

"It's water.  It all comes back to water.  We need that water to sustain life and that's what's at risk here is our water," says Koehn. The DNR says mines can use water at more than 70 gallons per minute.
