The Berkeley Pit is located in Butte, Montana. It was an old open pit copper mine that closed down in 1982. When the pit initally closed down, water from the aquifers nearby started to fill into the pit. Since then, the water level has risen to around 150 feet of the natural groundwater table. Given the "coal mine" portion, this pit is extremely dangerous. It's filled with arsenic, cadmium, copper, zinc, lead, etc. The pit is currently managed as a federal superfund environmental cleanup site. #image #photography #digitalphotography #digitalart #natural #nature #disaster #coalmine #pit #berkeleypit #cleanup #epa #toxic #adobephotoshoplightroom #canoneos5dmarkiii #sigma35mm
