EPA adds Bonita Peak Mining District to Superfund list

Listing for remediations comes about 1 year after Gold King Mine spill
This area, which shows the Gold King Mine and Red and Bonita Mine on the left as well as the Environmental Protection Agency’s wastewater treatment ponds and facility on the right, is at the heart of the Bonita Peak Mining District that was designated as a Superfund cleanup site. The photo was taken in June during an EcoFlight near Silverton.
This picture was taken shortly after the Aug. 5, 2015, Gold King Mine spill. On Wednesday, the EPA announced that mine sites around San Juan County will be an official Superfund site.
