Ever since there were coal mines in the North Fork Valley, there has been the problem of what to do with methane byproduct that continues to pour into the atmosphere.

Meanwhile, at the Paonia Dam, another problem threatens the climate of the North Fork Valley. Years and years of mud and silt have built up against the Dam, creating a thick clay that is rapidly filling up the reservoir.

Now, an innovative scientist and the North Fork Coal Methane Working Group have come up with a possible solution to both problems.

It’s been over twenty seven years since mining operations came to a halt at the Camp Bird Mine near Ouray. But if you go up to the mine at ten thousand feet, you’ll see a lot of activity.

When Caldera Mineral Resources bought the mine out of bankruptcy, they voluntarily agreed to work with the EPA to help keep contaminated mine waste from getting into nearby creeks.

I met up with Marty McComb – the On-Scene Coordinator for the EPA – to learn more about this mine reclamation project that began last August.
