Gold King Mine Spill

On August 5, 2015, EPA was conducting an investigation of the Gold King Mine. While excavating above the old adit, pressurized water began leaking above the mine tunnel, spilling three million gallons of toxic water stored behind the collapsed material into Cement Creek, a tributary of the Animas River. Video taken as it was happening shows a torrent of water pouring from the mine to the depths below.
