EPA Addresses Wastewater Spill With Community In Farmington, Shiprock
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy has been in Farmington, New Mexico, today meeting with community and tribal members, among others, about the agency’s response to the release of wastewater from Gold King Mine.
Last night, there was a community meeting at the Shiprock Chapter House in Shiprock, New Mexico, on the subject.
More than 300 people showed up, mainly farmers and ranchers who live along the San Juan River. We talked to KJZZ’s Laurel Morales, who was also at the meeting.
