Open house to focus on Breckenridge mine waste project


BRECKENRIDGE ” Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Forest Service and town of Breckenridge will be on hand Tuesday, April 17, to answer questions regarding the Claimjumper cleanup effort.

The EPA and Forest Service are planning a joint mine-waste cleanup for the

Shock Hill/Claimjumper Mine Site in northwestern Breckenridge. The removal

of the waste will decrease threats to human health and the environment from

high concentrations of lead and arsenic.

Staff members from EPA, Forest Service and the town will answer questions,

hear concerns and receive public comment related to the project and its

varying components.

The open house is scheduled between 3 and 6:30 p.m. in the multipurpose

room of the Breckenridge Recreation Center located at 857 Airport Road.
