Description

In the 1960s, the City of Denver opened up an old Air Force bombing range as a landfill for "questionable wastes." The EPA estimates that between 1964 and 1980, about 140 million gallons of hazardous waster were dumped at the site." But other records might put that figure around 220 million gallons. This three-part article looks at the struggle behind the Lowry landfill, and the actions of the community, the regulators, and those responsible for the toxic mess and its cleanup.
