Eagle River Watershed Council

The Eagle River Watershed Council owes its existence to the mining area around and below the present day ghost town of Gilman and because the Eagle River flows down the canyon just feet away from the mine site. Not surprisingly, the Eagle became contaminated with soluble heavy metals and the area was declared a Superfund site in 1985 which led to a massive clean-up effort.
