Which leaves them there for even greater dilution over time.

Don't you know the difference between good heavy metals and bad heavy metals?

Duck hunters' lead birdshot = bad
EPA's cadmium/lead/whatever = good.


Expensive Pollution Agency's  categories:

a:  Citizen or business activities:  BAD!  Must STOP!  (includes lead 
shot, coal, nuke power, business, farming, logging, private 
conservation practices, pretty much all productive human activity.)


b:  Gooberment activities: GOOD!   (pretty much anything non 
productive or counterproductive.)

This is a whole lotta stuff in the river in one slug but every wastewater

The solution to pollution is dilution.  Animas River is a good enough
dilution source.  The pollution will not be noticed over time.  i.e.
look at dead zones in the Mississippi River delta.

Don't forget it was a CONTRACTOR to the EPA that made the woops, not  
an agency employee.
