Denver (AP) -- Colorado regulators are demanding that a uranium
mining company locate the source of uranium contamination that has
polluted water supplies for three water providers. The health department says the water supplies for Denver Water, Arvada and North Table Mountain are safe even though the water contamination exceeds state standards. According to the Denver Post, regulators ordered Cotter Corporation to build a bypass pipeline to protect water by the end of January. The company is also being ordered to remove contamination from water supplies. A spokesman for Cotter did not return calls seeking comment.
