As federal officials finalize details for Saturday’s controversial opening of the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, sent a letter Thursday asking them to conduct more testing and noting many of his constituents want to postpone the opening.
“Unanticipated and significant climate events, including a massive flood in 2013, have changed the topography of the refuge,” Polis wrote to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. “It is critical to evaluate what impact the flood had on possible contamination from the adjoining Superfund site, centrally located within the refuge.”
But Polis, who is hoping to become Colorado’s next governor, stopped short of asking Zinke to stop the ceremony.eridani likes this
