Oil and Gas Wells – What We Don’t Know Can Harm Us

The League’s Events Planning Team is presenting a Community Conversation on March 19 at 11:30, in the Coloradoan Community Room, 1300 Riverside Avenue, Fort Collins.  Learn what the City of Longmont is doing to protect the health and safety of its residents from the impacts of oil and gas wells, and the associated pipelines.

Jason Elkins, City of Longmont Engineer, will speak about the City’s work – locating old oil and gas wells and identifying and assessing their related risks.  The City is also doing monitoring at both active and old wells, and it has started a program that allows for the continuous transmission of data from well sites.  Longmont is working with the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) to effect needed remediation.
