Acid mine drainage from abandoned mines is contaminating America’s rivers – and the Animas is the poster child. EPA estimates there are over 500,000 abandoned mines in the west, contaminating 40% of headwater streams. Join us! Together, we can find solutions and build healthy watersheds.
The San Juan Clean Water coalition is a unified voice for the health of the Animas River, and watersheds west-wide. We are a voluntary coalition of businesses, organizations and individuals in support of a comprehensive five point plan to protect and restore the health of the Animas River watershed while supporting much-needed mining reform legislation to assist with mine cleanup efforts across the nation.
