It could take years for a company to clean up contaminated ground water near a Colorado town.
Health officials say contaminated water from a Suncor Energy refinery in Commerce City contaminated the South Platte River.
The company's been working on clean up for the past 18-months - but levels of the cancer causing toxins are still six times higher than the national safety standard.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is pushing companies responsible for big spills, but full clean-up is often a slow process.
