Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and Deputy Secretary Lynn Scarlett honored eight recipients of the 2006 Department of the Interior Environmental Achievement Awards in a ceremony at the Interior Building in Washington, DC. The Secretary said the recipients are “role models for all Americans who want to celebrate Earth Day this week.”

The California BLM Abandoned Mine Lands Team was honored for the Boston Placer Mine Sluice Tunnel Remediation Project at Red Dog, CA. Accepting the award for the team were: David Lawler (California Abandoned Mine Lands Coordinator and Boston Project Manager), Tim Carroll (California's Folsom Field Offce Abandoned Mine Lands Coordinator and Boston Project Inspector) and John Key (California Program Lead for Hazardous Materials/Abandoned Mine Lands/Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration). See the Department of the Interior news release for more details.
