A plan to vastly expand a limestone mining operation on the northern edge of Glenwood Springs will set this Western Slope tourist town back a century, destroying its burgeoning tourist economy and clogging its streets with hundreds of trucks a day, critics say.
“The water that comes off the Flat Tops, and through this area, is the source of water that feeds the hot springs. This is just a really, really bad location for a mine next to a thriving tourism community.”
Steve Beckley, owner of Iron Mountain Hot Springs
The prospective intensity of the operation, which the paper said could generate 450 round-trip truckloads a day, has prompted several municipalities in the area — including New Castle, Basalt, Rifle and Carbondale — to pass resolutions opposing the plan, John Aguilar reports.
