BLM and Parks and Recreation employees partnered to address safety hazards posed by nearby abandoned mines.
BLM helped mitigate environmental and public safety risks on numerous abandoned mine sites in the La Sal region.
A cleanup plan for a former uranium mine on an Indian Tribe reservation was issued in September 2006.
The Monday Creek was deemed “unrecoverable” in 1990, but restoration efforts have given it new life.
Ten potentially harmful uranium mines were reclaimed and repurposed in the Red Pryor Mountains of central Montana.
To address the dangers of runoff and chemical deposits, BLM helped offset the cost of treatment plants to keep nearby waters safe.
