Rocky Flats lawsuit January 10, 2024
When federal agencies approved an 8-mile trail through the Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge Area, they failed to consider other options, violated the National Environmental Protection Act and put public health at risk, a federal lawsuit seeking to halt the trail filed Jan. 8 in U.S. District Court claims.
“Our concern is that people using the proposed Greenway will be exposed to dangerous levels of plutonium and other toxic substances,” said Deborah Segaloff in a Jan. 8 release. Segaloff is a board member of Physicians for Social Responsibility Colorado, a plaintiff in the case. “Public access could also transport contaminants off site.”
