An Environmental Protection Agency crew working at the Standard Mine above Crested Butte triggered a wastewater spill into a creek that flows into the town water supply — a small-scale repeat of the Gold King incident this year.
Only an estimated 2,000 gallons spilled Tuesday, amid efforts to open a collapsed portal. The impact on town water is expected to be minimal.
Yeah, the EPA has often done more damage than good. There is this situation that you describe here, and also of course the similar previous one. But there is more -
The EPA is out of control.
It almost seems like they are doing this on purpose, Gris! Then I think, it's the government and they don't do things well.
More EPA crap.
We were surprised to learn during the congressional hearings — and very little shocks us– that the EPA does not employ licensed, professional, mining engineers to oversee mine cleanups.
According to the National Society of Professional Engineers, that’s a violation of Colorado law.
Well, now that’s two violations.
Guess we’ll also be holding our breath for the EPA to be held accountable by Gov. Hickenlooper.
Guaranteed private companies could not get away with this.
