    Where gas pressures dominate the flow regime, this method will not yield useful results. To estimate depletion in this area, a different methodology would be required. November 17, It is often commented that renewable energy solutions such as solar or wind farms are diffuse energy solutions that occupy much larger swaths of land than non-renewable resources like coal-fired power plants. The cities shut off water-intake systems after the toxic wastewater flooded into the Animas River from the abandoned mine north of Silverton, Colo. The mining company initially won approval for the extended lease in and has been mining since.

    Water from the municipal systems operated by Aztec and Farmington remains safe for drinking. The company reviews multiple scenarios that take into account potential resources to determine the most cost-effective mix for meeting electric demand while complying with environmental regulations and maintaining system reliability. The heavy metals appeared to be settling to the bottom of the river. If the mine and power plant shut down, it would hurt the local economy, according to socio-economic studies in the environmental impact study.
