Membership Meeting: Impacts from the Gold King Mine Spill and the Bonita Peaks Mining District Superfund Site
The Southern Ute Indian Tribe’s Environmental Programs Division (EPD) is hosting a Tribal member meeting to present information to the membership on impacts from the Gold King Mine Spill and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) newly designated Bonita Peak Mining District Superfund Site (BPMD). The SUIT Water Quality Program will provide an update on the Gold King Mine spill impacts to the Animas River one year after the event. Representatives from EPA will provide a presentation on the BPMD and its impact on the Reservation and the Brunot Treaty Area. The EPA will prepare both Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessments for the area, as part of the Superfund process. The Culture Department will be available to discuss Tribal involvement in assessing and preserving the Ute cultural resources in the BPMD.
The meeting will be held at the Sunnyside School on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 6:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
For additional information, please contact Tom Johnson/Environmental Programs Division Head or Curtis Hartenstine/Water Quality Program Manager at 563-0135.
