"On August 5, an accidental spill from the Gold King Mine, a long-abandoned gold mine site in Colorado, released an estimated 3 million gallons of acid mine drainage (AMD) wastewater into a tributary of the Animas River. From there, the contaminated wastewater migrated downstream to the San Juan River into New Mexico, Utah, and tribal lands."
