Don Coram passes resolution pushing for lawsuit against EPA

Action would seek reimbursements for Gold King Mine spill
Waste from the Gold King Mine north of Silverton fills the Animas River at Bakers Bridge in August 2015 after an EPA-triggered blowout.
The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office closed the Animas River for several days in the wake of the Aug. 5, 2015 Gold King Mine spill that dumped more than three million gallons of toxic waste into the waterway. Many tourism-related businesses in the region were negatively impacted by the spill, and have sought reimbursement from the EPA.
