Huh... Is this even legal? Where is EPA? Where are zoning laws and such?

Hello, this is 'merica. The magic invisible guiding hand of the free market will take care of it.

My boss in FC told me about the similar story near Boulder and the rock ridge nuclear site.

Rocky Flats, maybe you mean. Where they machined the plutonium cores for the H bombs. And let the pollution just waft over Denver... Now the site of three smallish wind turbines--and ongoing lawsuits and investigations even though the site is officially cleaned up.

Or maybe you mean the Rocky Mountain arsenal, a few miles away on the east side of Denver, where they stored tons of nerve gas in rusting 55 gallon drums, and then when it was time to build a new airport, conveniently found that they could just spread a bit of dirt on the toxic waste and presto-change-o, there's a new park!

Can't remember.  But I remember the 4 and 5 storey houses that needed a 20 minute drive just to pick up some milk.
