FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – A conference about the Gold King Mine spill is expected to bring experts from across the state and nation to a New Mexico college.
The Daily Times reports that the two-day conference begins Tuesday at San Juan College in Farmington. It will include presentations on the condition of local water sources before and after an Environmental Protection Agency crew accidentally released water polluted with mine waste into the Animas River last August.
The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute is hosting the event in collaboration with other organizations.
Institute director Sam Fernald said in a press release that the conference will help four states, two tribes and several agencies share information.
