Governor Hickenlooper’s office prepared to assist in Silverton Superfund negotiations

Wastewater coming from the Gold King Mine continues to spew about 600 gallons per minute. But the water is now being treated before being released into Cement Creek, a tributary of the Animas River. On Monday, the San Juan County Commission and the Silverton Town Board both unanimously voted to purse Superfund listing with the Environmental Protection Agency to help pay for cleanup of leaking, now-dormant mines near the town.
