ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the shutdown of twin 750 megawatt boilers at the Mohave Generating Station in Laughlin, Nevada and the ceased operations of the draglines at Black Mesa Mine on Hopi and Navajo land in northeastern Arizona. Apparently, some has viewed the closing of the power plant and the mine as beneficial for the residents living nearby and for the environment, citing the Mohave was the dirtiest remaining powerplant in the Intermountain West. The shutdowns has been revealed to be caused by a lawsuit filed in 1997 by the Grand Canyon Trust and other environmental groups against Southern California Edison, Mohave's majority owner.
