There's a new way for people to learn about the Berkeley Pit, and Butte-Silver Bow supervisors got a look at it Wednesday night.
For the first time in nearly 15 years, the Pitwatch web site has been updated.
Justin Ringsak of Pitwatch told supervisors the site is now more useful, more informative and more modern.
"Image galleries with things like series of images on one specific issue, like photos of the Berkeley Pit over time. And then short videos like a time lapse of the Berkeley Pit from 1984 to 2013," Ringsak said, are some new features of the website.
Ringsak says the site has more than 200 images collected from Pitwatch and the Butte Archives, many drawings and graphics plus more than 200 technical files for people doing research.
An additional section is now available especially dedicated to students and teachers.
