Chaffetz, Bishop and Lummis Letter to Dennis Greaney


WASHINGTON, D.C., September 1, 2015 - TO: Mr. Dennis Greaney

FROM: Jason Chaffetz, Chairman
Rob Bishop, Chairman
Cynthia M. Lummis, Chairman

Dear Mr. Greaney:

An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spokesman identified your company, Environmental Restoration, LLC, as the contractor "whose work caused a mine spill in Colorado that released an estimated three million gallons of toxic sludge into a major river system." The toxic discharge affected the environment in at least three states and disrupted the livelihoods of nearly every person and business in the surrounding areas. The full damages and long-term consequences of the spill are still unknown. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) and the House Committee on Natural Resources (HCNR) are conducting oversight into this toxic spill.
