Mine Waste Spill
In this Aug. 14, 2015, file photo, water flows through a series of sediment retention ponds built to reduce heavy metal and chemical contaminants from the Gold King Mine wastewater accident outside Silverton, Colo. The Environmental Protection Agency had no rules for working around old mines when the agency inadvertently triggered the massive spill from the Colorado mine that polluted rivers in three states, government investigators said Monday, June 12, 2017.

Armed with a stunner and fish nets, aquatics biologists Cory Noble and Josh Nehring (left to right) with Colorado Parks and Wildlife wade up Bear Creek to capture Greenback Cutthroat Trout on Tuesday, June 13, 2017. In the 1930's, the Greenback Cutthroat Trout was thought to be extinct. But the rare fish was not extinct in the wild, partly because an innkeeper in the 1870's had stocked a pond near Bear Creek with Greenback Cutthroat Trout. The biologists were capturing males and females for the purpose of artificial spawning and eventually increasing the population of the trout by restocking at various locations in the state. The Greenback Cutthroat Trout is the state fish of Colorado. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
