Leadville update


I have had a couple of posts previously about environmental and safety reports concerning my favorite vacation location, Leadville, Colorado. I received this update today:

UPDATE ON THE MINE WATER ISSUE

Things are progressing since our last update. On February 27, the Environmental Protection Agency began pumping water from the Gaw Shaft to relieve some of the pressure on the Leadville Mine Drainage Tunnel. Local officials continue to work with state and federal agencies for a permanent solution. The water in Leadville remains safe, and is being tested daily.
Sounds good! Good thing, because we're planning to be in Leadville for a family (and I mean lots of family) vacation this summer.
