WASHINGTON, D.C., December 10, 2015 - TO: Lieutenant General Thomas Bostick

FROM: Louie Gohmert, Chairman Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations

Dear General Bostick:

The contaminated plume traveled through the Animas and San Juan River systems in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona and caused an undetermined amount of damage to crops, local water systems, wildlife, and communities along the river.
