Mine Waste Spill

Mine Waste Spill

FILE - In this Aug. 14, 2015, file photo, water flows through a series of sediment retention ponds built to reduce heavy metal and chemical contaminants from the Gold King Mine wastewater accident outside Silverton, Colo. The Environmental Protection Agency had no rules for working around old mines when the agency inadvertently triggered the massive spill from the Colorado mine that polluted rivers in three states, government investigators said Monday, June 12, 2017.
