After a flood like this, simply getting clean drinking water can be a serious challenge. Now, in addition to digging their ruined homes and possessions out of the mud and wreckage, Coloradans (and anyone downstream) have to worry about toxic chemicals from gas and oil wells getting mixed into the groundwater and on farmland. What a mess.
