BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– The Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed what it initially thought about an investigation into at least 100 dead fish in Left Hand Creek. Contaminated water from an old mine killed the fish.

The Captain Jack Mill has been an active Superfund cleanup site since 2008.
