Utah's $1.9 billion claim against the Environmental Protection Agency for a multi-state mine waste spill says Utah's water, soil and wildlife were damaged, but it offers no specifics.Farmers and utilities temporarily stopped drawing water from the rivers, and rafting companies had to suspend operations.Utah's claim from the spill is believed to be the largest of 144 filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act, which allows people to seek government compensation without a lawsuit.Dan Burton, a spokesman for Attorney General Sean Reyes, said the state's lawyers came up with the number after consulting with Utah Department of Environmental Quality scientists and others.The EPA-led crew was using heavy equipment to excavate the mine opening in preparation for a possible cleanup when a worker breached a debris pile that was holding back wastewater in the shaft.After the spill, the EPA designated the Gold King and 47 other mining sites in the area a Superfund district and is reviewing options for a broad cleanup.
