Just curious to what Aztec is doing to help the citizens other than arranging for a maximum 100 gallons/day of water and showers at McGee park. 100 gallons doesn't go far when you also have livestock.

This is what happens when a private company allows a discharge of water containinng dust and debris into a waterway, they get CRIMINALLY charged and sentenced by the EPA. For DUST, not arsenic, lead, cadmium, berillium et al.
