His name is Gene and he lives in Greeley.
This is his story:
There are four wells and twelve tanks proposed to be built within 360 feet of where I live. This isn't the right place to build that. I'm legally blind, and several of my neighbors are handicapped. Having an increase in traffic in the area will be hazardous to our health and mobility, not to mention the hazard to the children and high school students who live in the area. This project is located in the heart of a residential area with three sides bordered by houses. Constructing these wells would change the entire safety of the area for someone like me.
Their names are Connie and Mel, they live in Windsor.
This is their story.
"They have not even considered the consequences of their actions on nearby residents, which will include the impact on our health, damage to our roads, dust, noise, polluting the air we breathe and the water we drink, not to mention a decline in our property values.
We live about two miles from another drilling site, and when our windows are open, we can hear the noise caused by the drilling and smell the emissions.
During burn-off, the formerly beautiful night sky is no longer...it is all lit up, causing an eerie sight. It is unimaginable what a drilling operation within 700 feet of my home would be!
In August, Governor John Hickenlooper appointed 21 individuals to the Colorado Oil and Gas Task Force. The Task Force is charged with conducting public hearings and by March 2015 making a series of public policy recommendations to the Colorado State Legislature regarding oil and gas operations in Colorado.
Clean Water Action is taking a lead in pushing the Task Force to make meaningful recommendations that protect Colorado communities – as well as our water, air, and land – from the risks of oil and gas development. But we need your help. Contact the Task Force today.
If you live in the Denver metro area, shouldn’t you have a say when it comes to deciding if and how drilling and fracking occurs near the rivers and reservoirs that supply your drinking water?
