BLM removes mine waste leaching into Animas River

About 2,500 cubic yards of contaminated material relocated
This picture was taken in mid-October after work at Lewis Lake Tailings Pond to remove tailings leaching heavy metals into the Animas River. The Bureau of Land Management said avalanche-downed timber has been placed throughout the removal site for soil stabilization and habitat cover. The black erosion control fence will remain in place until next summer.
