Guess What EPA’s Friday Night Document Release Showed About The Animas River Spill

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

It’s a well known fact that Friday is the best day for government to release embarrassing documents.

Taking a page from that familiar bureaucratic playbook, the Environmental Protection Agency released documents late Friday night in its effort to clean up the Gold King mine in Colorado.

The documents showed the EPA was aware there was a potential for a massive spill of polluted water.

Fox News reported:

Among the documents is a June 2014 work order for a planned cleanup that noted that the old mine had not been accessible since 1995, when the entrance partially collapsed. The plan appears to have been produced by Environmental Restoration, a private contractor working for EPA.

“This condition has likely caused impounding of water behind the collapse,” the report says. “ln addition, other collapses within the workings may have occurred creating additional water impounding conditions. Conditions may exist that could result in a blowout of the blockages and cause a release of large volumes of contaminated mine waters and sediment from inside the mine, which contain concentrated heavy metals.”

A May 2015 action plane for the mine also notes the potential for a blowout. There are at least three current investigations into exactly how EPA triggered the environmental disaster, which tainted rivers in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah with lead, arsenic and other contaminants. Water tests have shown the contamination levels have since fallen back to pre-spill levels. However, experts warn the heavy metals have likely sunk and mixed with bottom sediments that could someday stirred back up.

Now that we have proof of EPA’s incompetence and negligence who is going to be held accountable?
