Walls should protect Eagle River
Vail, CO Colorado
MINTURN, Colorado “Concrete retaining walls are being built along the Eagle River to prevent contaminated rock from sliding down a hillside and into the water.
The work is taking place in a steep canyon south of Minturn, near the defunct Eagle Mine. The walls, which will replace decaying wooden fences called “cribbings,” will be 17 feet tall and several hundred feet long.
