FILE - In this Oct. 26, 2009, file photo, Peggy Pauly, who formed Yearington's first citizen advocacy group to address the water contamination from the former Anaconda copper mine site near Yearington, Nev., is pictured in front of the leach ponds that are responsible for most of that contamination. Fifteen years after U.S. regulators started assessing damage and health risks at an abandoned Nevada copper mine, the Environmental Protection Agency is moving to add the contaminated site to its Superfund National Priority List, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
