EPA Blamed for Catastrophic Toxic Spill into the Colorado River

No duh, but it’s official [1]: The EPA screwed up and is to blame for the toxic spill:

Federal investigators faulted the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for dumping 3 million gallons of wastewater from a Colorado gold mine into the Animas and San Juan Rivers in August.

According to investigators from the Interior Department, EPA officials could have prevented the spill.
