The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday took a key step toward cleanup at the Gold King Mine and 35 other sites in southwestern Colorado, putting them on the National Priorities List for Superfund cleanup.
EPA officials said they’ll announce the prioritization of these sites along Animas River headwaters above Silverton – “the Bonita Peak Mining District” – in the federal register on Friday. These are among 10 new sites nationwide targeted for cleanups — dependent on Congress providing funds. The federal Superfund program involves investigating and cleaning up the nation’s worst environmental disasters to protect human health and the environment.
