- State of New Mexico Develops Collaborative Plan for Monitoring of Gold King Mine Spill’s Long-Term Effects
SANTA FE—The State of New Mexico’s multi-agency Long-Term Impact Review Team, named by Gov. Susana Martinez during the Environmental Protection Agency’s Gold King Mine Spill last August, is developing the Road Map for continuing environmental monitoring activities that are informed by continuing public input.
By collaborating with San Juan County’s civic and regional leaders, academia, stakeholder groups, and concerned citizens, and by reaching out to the Tribes, the six-agency Long-Term Impact Review Team will ensure that New Mexicans’ concerns are documented and incorporated into the Long-Term Monitoring Plan, which will be released for its 30-day public comment period Tuesday.
The New Mexico Environment Department, Department of Agriculture, Department of Game & Fish, Department of Health, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the State Engineer will participate in Tuesday’s meeting 5:30-8 p.m., Tuesday at San Juan College, Rooms 9008 & 9010, Henderson Fine Arts Center, 4601 College Blvd., in Farmington.
The public is invited to attend and provide input.
