Another Colorado lawmaker is voicing concern about the proposed uranium mine located north of Nunn.

U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., said Tuesday he was asking the Environmental Protection Agency to keep northern Colorado’s water in mind when the agency reviews the project for a permits.

Salazar wrote to Robert Roberts, regional administrator for the EPA, urging him to address several concerns about possible environmental impacts, such as groundwater contamination as a result of the extraction process employed at uranium mines. Salazar asked that those concerns be addressed and analyzed as thoroughly as possible when the project’s application for an Underground Injection Control Program Class III permit is reviewed by the EPA.
