SALT LAKE CITY — With three million gallons of contaminated water flowing into the San Juan River, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says the EPA has some explaining to do, and Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has declared a state of emergency.
“First and foremost, make sure that drinking water, that recreational water, that water critical to people’s lives and businesses is safe immediately,” Reyes said.
Reyes, along with Attorneys General from New Mexico and Colorado, held a press conference in Durango, following the EPA’s own press conference on Wednesday.
