    It wasn’t an accident & the toxins released are the same as those found in chemtrails, vaccines as well. All part of Agenda 21.

  2.' Kerry Paparusi says:

    No accident. They want to build a new water plant in Colorado.

  3.' Jeffrey Emerson says:

    Think of infrastructure jobs if we hired supervised workers to orderly clean up and safely treat the 5000+ old abandoned contaminated mines

  4.' Jeffery Lee Moran says:

    they did it to kill pot plants !

  5.' Paulette Sanchez says:

    I’d like to see those who mishandled or accidently failed to safely do their job be INVESTIGATED individually, who were these people?

  6.' Kathleen Holly Turner says:

    How do this fools sleep at night?

  7.' Jeffrey Emerson says:

    Just by closing tax loopholes so corporations pay their FAIR taxes, we could erase the deficient and pay for massive infrastruction job creation… and free college, and free medical (after we SLASH artificially high medical supply costs).

  8.' Helen Heinle says:

    This is ridiculous- ineptitude like this certainly can’t be an accident. These agencies and their people are hell bent on carrying the water for UN Agenda 21 and destroying nature and our world as God Created it. I was just informed of the Parks and Recreation Dept. in Muskogee, (sp?) Oklahoma recently dumping ROUND-UP (of all the god awful things) into a POND in a park near my cousin’s mothers home, because it developed an algae bloom. Now they’ve killed everything in the pond, turned the green algae brown and sickened neighbors and their pets! Who does this kind of ignorant sh*t?? I have never bought Round-up (thank goodness) but feel sure it states on the label of these kinds of poisons- I have from time to time spot sprayed weeds on the farm with 2-4-D and the like- Do not use near streams or allow runoff into ponds, waterways, etc. This kind of ignorance can only be willful. Those responsible for this kind of debacle should be made to pay to clean it up themselves- or do the work themselves. Inexcusable when this is coming from an agency supposed to be protecting nature from the very sh*t they are doing. Its everywhere you look. : (

  9.' Cecil Moreno says:

    Agent yellow…..

  10.' Helen Heinle says:

    Interesting found in the mine water are many of the same toxic heavy metals being suspected of being released into the air from the climate remediation and geoengineering programs. The next film talked about the ‘haze’ taking over or being found in many of our National Parks- funny, could it be from the aerosol spraying, I wonder. Also, most of OUR National Parks are no longer OURS- they’ve been taken over by the U.N…Check it out folks !

  11.' Johnlene Kennedy says:

    did it on perpouse cause it wa used for drinking water

  12.' Wendy Hardin says:

    Why are idiots still allowed to do important things?

  13.' Lois Dolan says:

    I agree, there is an underlying motive here, We can not trust what they say. Maybe we should ask Nestles.

  14.' Clark W Grizwald says:

    Fuck them. Fuck every one of them. A mistake like that is not acceptable. At all. Fuck them for fucking us and our planet. Irreversible. Fuck them.

  15.' Margaret Tullos-Tewell says:

    Such a shame this was allowed to happen! Someone had to know that was there… You don’t just start digging in a unfamiliar place with a backhoe Without checking it out!

  16.' Robert L West says:

    very sad.

  17.' Maurice Wendo says:

    So the river is expendeable and wasted while still in use, just because of a dam water project?

  18.' Yahs-pər Van Dam says:

    Because it’s just a shameless orange ritual, your in the middle of a transition star position. A normal effect of our living here.

    First picking up the crap you left then we can grow again…

    All cells are one! Communication is just like I do to you…

    Be wise and change the world in aligned of MHCY-lineup…

  19.' Brandon Broach says:

    Thank you Conscious Life News…good read.

  20.' Karyn Rene' says:

    Somebody needs to lose their job! idiots running this project! Shame on them!

  21.' Erik Albert says:

    They either clean up the mess or you drown them in it. Natural no nonsense. I mean, there is no such thing as coincidence. In other words, if they can get away with it, it’s because you let them get away with it.

  22.' Carina Gous says:

    Probably not an accident but a deliberate way to force people to pay more for water. The evil ceo of Nestle is behind the drive that water is not a human right it must be paid for.

  23.' Priscilla Dhillon says:

    bloody shocking. Amrit JW Dhillon

  24.' Rose Alexandra Egure says:

    They should be careful with what they do !

  25.' Zane Hamblin says:

    You spill a glass of water but you don’t spill 3 million gallons!!
    The link provided below explains a lot of these so called “accidents”

  26.' Tonie Monarres says:

    NEVER “IF” someone is NOT ” sleeping”

  27.' Leah Lawson says:

    Never should happen ever period risking the lives of animals and humans and Mother Earth no one or any amount of money is worth this. This land is for future generations too, remember that. It’s not the governments or the corporations it belongs to the universe as a whole we are a disgrace to the land and don’t appreciate what we have. I’m sad

  28.' Patrick Daniels says:

    Hopefully people will start realizing that the EPA is just another government con.

  29.' Roxanne Prokes says:

    And they are trying to get the Navajo Nation to waive their rights to sue? Pretty damn quick for an agency that is trying to back out of their responsibility by not doing a damn thing to clean up this shameful mess.

  30.' Taina Santiago-Colon says:

    I hear very little coming from the EPA except “whoops” paraphrased continually.

  31.' Patricia Jonassen says:

    arsnic is used when refinning gold ,so now there is another river poisoned ,and nobody seems to care ,what the hell is going on ????

  32.' Robin Aldridge says:


  33.' Frank Amedure says:


  34.' Kat Lopez says:

    inside job. again.

  35.' Elizabeth Brettig says:

    Each of us need to value our selves and the nature around us and work to make sure these kind of things don’t happen where possible.
