A federal lawsuit filed Monday aims to halt the Rocky Mountain Greenway project over concerns the trail would be built on “heavily contaminated portions” of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons production facility.
“Our concern is that people using the proposed Greenway will be exposed to dangerous levels of plutonium and other toxic substances,” said Deborah Segaloff, a board member for one of the plaintiffs, Physicians for Social Responsibility Colorado. “Public access could also transport contaminants off site.”
