    The U.S. Supreme Court denied Teck’s appeal on a previous ruling, which awarded more than $8 million in legal costs to the Colville Confederated Tribes. They successfully argued that Teck used the Columbia River, which feeds from southwestern B.C. across the border into Washington State, as a disposal ground for heavy metals like arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead from its smelter facility in Trail, B.C. Teck is also financially responsible for the cleanup. (CBC)
