EPA Offers No Apology for Toxic River Spill: Ask Navajo Citizens to Sign Their Future Rights Away


OLJATO, UTAH — Two community involvement representatives from EPA Region 9, David Yogie and Secody Hubbard, provided an update on the toxic spill of the Animas River that made its way into the San Juan River to Navajo citizens on Monday in Oljato, Utah.

“The EPA is taking this very seriously and it’s working to control this, first and foremost,” Yogie said.

He said two EPA contractors have been sampling the water along the San Juan River with representatives from the Navajo EPA Surface Mining Program.
