What I find so Ironic is its a EPA goof that caused the worst ecological disaster on the Animas river in 50 years that I know of

What the hell does this have to do with the EPA?
The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed it triggered the spill while using heavy machinery to investigate pollutants at the Gold King Mine, north of Silverton.
And today – as the contaminated pulse of mine waste flows downstream – Energy Fuels is beginning operations at the Canyon uranium mine. Despite being only six miles from the Grand Canyon’s south rim, the Canyon Mine lacks a rigorous well-monitoring program. The Canyon Mine has no consistent system to test water quality in mine seeps, and there is no regular spring monitoring intended to detect or prevent radiological contamination of the Grand Canyon’s water resources. Already, the USGS has found dozens of the Grand Canyon region’s seeps and springs contaminated by the legacy of uranium mining.
