COLLBRAN, Colorado — A new report on the landslide that killed three men in western Colorado last year warns that the landside remains a threat to nearby residents.
The Daily Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1KU0AV5) the Colorado Geological Survey report says a sag pond that was formed when part of the Green River Formation faltered and slid down is a potential threat.
State geologist Karen Berry says Collbran, located six miles below the slide, is not in danger, but ranchers and others living in the area should be aware of the sag pond, which is likely to refill in the spring.
According to the report, the slide covers nearly a square mile atop the West Salt Creek valley.
Mesa County is using a monitoring system to detect any changes in the slide.
