From the Pueblo Chieftain: “Trace amounts of mercury and aluminum have been detected in Fountain Creek below Colorado Springs. The elements showed up during testing in March, but researchers are not sure about its origin or how much of a problem it could be. ‘We need to see if it’s a one-time release or an ongoing problem,’ David Lehmpuhl, a chemistry professor at Colorado State University-Pueblo, told the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District board.”
