From The New Mexico Political Report (Laura Paskus):
The New Mexico Gold King Mine Spill Citizens’ Advisory Committee will meet Monday evening in Farmington.
According to the New Mexico Environment Department, the committee includes 11 citizen volunteers from northern New Mexico, including the Navajo Nation, and works with New Mexico’s Long-Term Impact Review Team to monitor and understand the long-term impacts of the 2015 Gold King Mine accident…
Monday’s meeting will include a presentation on the area’s hydrogeology and geochemistry and provide an opportunity for public comment.
In May, the team released a long-term monitoring plan for the Animas River.
In addition to monitoring the impacts of the Gold King Mine spill, the work scientists are doing will help people understand how waste runoff from other mines affects surface and groundwater resources in the area. The work will also help identify how any future releases from abandoned mines might affect the Animas watershed.
Monday’s meeting will begin at 5:30 and be held in the SUNS Room at San Juan Community College in Farmington. For more information: http://www.NMEDriverwatersafety.org or http://NMENV-Outreach@state.nm.us
