The Save Lake Superior Association, begun in 1969, is the oldest citizen group working exclusively to preserve and protect Lake Superior. It was organized to help stop the dumping of taconite tailings into Lake Superior by Reserve Mining, whose tailings were threatening human health and contaminating the water and aquatic life. It is cleaner today because of the actions taken by SLSA.
