Contaminated water on its way to Navajo

 


One million gallons of mine wastewater that breached a wall at the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colo., is making its way to the Navajo Nation.

The spill of heavy metals – lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum and copper – will likely impact downstream users, including over 10 Navajo chapters and hundreds of farmers that rely on the San Juan River.
