After we complained to the state department of health the city has upped their estimate of 3 gallons per minute to 300,000 total gallons released. The city manager is quoted in the Durango Herald as saying the new figure is not an increase off the original estimate. (300K is 69 days @3 gal/min) If we use the pump truck math a more real estimate would be about 1,500,000 gallons if the leak started Friday and flowed consistently the duration. Both my children swam smelters on the Sunday and were sickened. The city manager told me that "we don't know what made them sick", and he also asked me if I "was a doctor". Personally I think that the City of Durango owes the public an apology for acting in bad faith. An apology and a real third party accounting of the spill total, followed by investment in some sort of remedial action to offset the pollution and environmental damage which they caused but can't clean up.
