The Eiler Heights Neighborhood is generally located to the east of Interstate 25, from Northern Avenue to the south up to the convergence of Santa Fe Avenue and Santa Fe Drive to the north, and over to School Street and the open area to the east. The neighborhood traces its roots back to before 1900 when the Colorado Smelter was in operation. A 1907 map of the City of Pueblo shows it as the Eilers Plant of the American Smelting and Refining Company.

Colorado Smelter Site is officially added to the
National Priorities List
On December 11, 2014, the Colorado Smelter was added to the National Priorities List officially making the Elers and Bessemer neighborhoods part of a Superfund Site. Learn more at National Priorities List website, or download the Final Rule.
The EPA has released the Consent for Access Letter and Form. These documents have been mailed to residents and property owners in the Eilers AND Bessemer neighborhoods who live within a ½ mile proximity of the Colorado Smelter slag pile. Download a copy of these documents below.
The EPA has released a preliminary map!
At the January 13, 2015, Community Advisory Group meeting, the Environmental Protection Agency released a map illustrating the area for which it has sent the Consent for Access Letter to residents. This is not the official boundary for the Superfund Site, as the EPA has not officially set any boundaries. This is the area for which it is wanting to do the initial testing. This area WILL change as they test the area. It is unknown if the area will increase or decrease. Click the image below to obtain a larger, .pdf version of the map.
