Colorado residents’ anxiety over uranium mining and water

Residents voice uranium project concerns Speakers at Nunn meeting share opinions about proposed uranium mine and pump test BY BOBBY MAGILL  December 22, 2009 NUNN – Standing before a crowd of more than 100 people Monday night, Fort Collins resident Diane Marschke said she doesn’t think it matters if Powertech USA’s proposed Centennial Project uranium mine pollutes the water. “When people hear there’s a uranium mine 10 miles away, they aren’t going to come here,” she said. Marschke and about 15 others confronted U.S. Environ-mental Protection Agency officials at the Nunn Community Center with their opinions about a proposed water pump test that will tell Powertech if its in situ leaching method of uranium mining is viable in the area.
