We are a grassroots group of Weld County, Colorado citizens organizing our community around oil and gas development in our neighborhoods, providing information, and advocating for health and safety . We hope you find our site informative, educational, and inspiring!
- We are busily preparing to meet with and comment to the Air Quality Control Commission regarding their upcoming rule making on the oil and gas industry. Weld Air and Water is requesting that all existing and new oil and gas facilities be required to use technologies that meet lowest achievable emissions rate standards. They are also asking that any facility near homes be equipped with continuous emission monitors, and be subject to monthly inspections.
- On 5/31/13, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission(COGCC), the state agency regulating oil and gas development) approved 2 new well sites within the Greeley city limits. They will be drilled by a company named Mineral Resources. One site is quite close to an elementary school, and the other is in east Greeley quite close to a 42-unit, lower-income apartment complex. Below are links to the permits:
