Summitville tour held

On Saturday, June 30, the Summitville Superfund site in Rio Grande County opened its doors for public tours. Tours allowed about 120 people to see the new public access areas as well as inside the Superfund site and water treatment plant. In this photo, the first tour group looks into open pits gouged out of the mountainside created during the 1980s mining era. See full story in next week’s Monte Vista Journal.
