New Mexico Governor: EPA Did Not Inform Us of the Toxin Spill – Refuses to Tell Us What Poisons Are in River
The Obama Environmental Protection Agency mistakenly dumped 3 million gallons of toxic waste water from an abandoned mine into Colorado’s Animas River. The mine is still leaking toxins into the river.
New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez spoke with FOX News today. The Republican governor said the EPA has not been communicating with them and that she found out about it from Indian tribe.
“We are not aware of all the toxins that are in the river. The EPA has not been communicating and has not been forthcoming with the state of New Mexico… The dangers in the short-term and the long-term are unknown because the EPA is not communicating openly with the state of New Mexico.”

“Initially, we weren’t even told that the toxic spill had ended up in the river. It took them a little less than 24 hours before they even told us, number one. Number two, we were not even told what toxins are in the river. And, actually it didn’t even come from the EPA. The Southern Ute Indians are the ones who actually informed us.“
