Protect Colorado Schools from Hazardous Drilling and Fracking Projects

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, appointed by Governor Hickenlooper, is about to approve permits for drilling projects that would place 19 horizontal wells and 20 holding tanks within 1,000 feet of the playground at Frontier Elementary School located in Greeley.  If that wasn’t egregious enough, Mineral Resources, Inc. is also seeking a permit for 37 new wells within 350 feet of a low income apartment complex in downtown Greeley—with no notice to the residents of these rental units! Stand with the community in Greeley and help them tell Governor Hickenlooper to say “No Fracking Way” to a fracking rig next to their child’s school or in their backyard.

Send your letter today! Tell Governor Hickenlooper we can’t allow fracking next to schools and homes.

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am concerned by the siting of proposed wells in the permit applications submitted by Mineral Resources for the South Greeley and Midtown Directional Projects. Please tell the COGCC not approve the applications for these sites.

We need to keep our children safe from dangerous emissions and potential spills and explosions from drilling and fracking operations sited mere feet from where they live, learn and play. South Greeley and Midtown Directional Projects are not appropriate locations for large multi-well industrial operations, because vulnerable populations will be faced with unacceptable health, safety and traffic risks. These sites should not be permitted.

These permits are too close to homes and schools in Greeley and should not be approved. I am counting on your support to protect Colorado families and children from fracking.
