EPA Toxic River Spill Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy testified on the toxic river spill caused by the EPA and one of its contractors near the shuttered Gold King Mine in Silverton, Colorado. The rupture released 3 million gallons of waste water from the mine into the Animas River and contained lead, arsenic, and cadmium.

Administrator McCarthy said her agency takes full responsibility for the incident and was waiting for independent review by the Interior Department. Other witnesses included officials from Colorado and New Mexico environment departments and other local officials affected by the spill. close
