    We need to get rid of the EPA so these things happen more often and nobody will be around to test the toxicity of the rivers.
    At least that's what was claimed the last time mine waste contaminated water, as if somehow the EPA was to blame for toxic mine water instead of you know, the mining industry.

    Curious that no one was there to add fuel to the pump...it ran out of fuel??? 20 hours??? Was anyone, then, really aware that anything was wrong at the site? More negligence equals more problems downstream.

    Hmmm. when this first happened Utah politicians were outraged, outraged I tell you. This time, crickets. I wonder if who the occupant of the White House is has anything to do with it.
