Hurriedly constructed retention ponds, built in an attempt to contain and treat the water spilling from the Gold King Mine.
Orange appears to be a recurring theme for us lately.
Over a week ago (!), the EPA (technically, one of their contractors) turned the Animas River in Colorado a putrid curry orange, when they spilled into the river a tremendous amount of contaminated waste water from a defunct mine. This “accident” happened while the EPA was allegedly trying to prevent a spill and “clean up” a mine that’s been inactive for over 90 years. Their bone-headed blunder is raising many questions in the blogosphere.
Heck of a job, Barry!!!
