Announcements and Key Topics

EPA, BLM, USFS, and CDPHE have selected a site strategy as part of the Adaptive Management process that follows a reach-by-reach approach. The strategy will focus future long-term remedial solutions to stabilize sources, reduce metal loading into the Animas River, and improve water quality in areas where aquatic life will benefit the most.

Community Advisory Group

The Bonita Peak Community Advisory Group (CAG) was established in 2019 and is an independent group that serves as an informational conduit between diverse community interests and U.S. EPA and its governmental partners with regard to activities at the Bonita Peak Mining District Superfund site and their effects on the Animas River watershed within Colorado. In its advisory capacity, the CAG desires outcomes that are: protective of human health and the environment, feasible and practicable, conducted expeditiously and efficiently, and mindful of community cultural, social and economic interests.
