Animas River Individual Research Project:
Communicating Science about the Gold King Mine Spill and Water Quality in the Animas River
- How have geological, biological and human factors created and exacerbated acid mine drainage and water quality issues in the Animas River?
- What ecological and human health threats might be associated with the Gold King Mine spill: initially, currently and in the future?
- What actions can be taken to improve the water quality in Cement Creek and the Animas River watershed?
- What is the role of science in making policy decisions?
This lab report reflects on my knowledge that I gained during the Animas River unit. I was proud of this piece because of the effort and deep understanding that was displayed.
