(Dallas, Texas – February 16, 2010) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $225,000 to the Red River Restoration Group. The group will use the funds to help the Questa, New Mexico, community affected by the Chevron Mine Site (formally known as the Molycorp Mine) understand information contained in EPA technical documents and assist in understanding the decisions that will be made related to site cleanup. Information developed by independent technical advisors will be shared with the rest of the community and will aid in the preparation of public comments and allow for more meaningful participation in the cleanup decision-making process.
