Caption

Containment booms cross Sand Creek just above its confluence with the South Platte River at the Suncor Energy refinery. Benzene is leaking into the water at levels as much as 100 times the federal water quality standard. Suncor processes tar sands it receives by pipeline from Canada, as well as locally-produced crude oil. Photographed in Commerce City, Colorado, USA.
