Join BCC for a special Community Info Night

A fracking wastewater well in Battlement Mesa?

Not on our watch!

Two years ago, Battlement Mesa citizens mobilized to oppose two proposed industrial oil and gas developments in our community — winning some of the most robust safety protections and drilling rules anywhere in Colorado.

Now, Ursa Resources is proposing to construct two new pads within the Battlement Mesa PUD. One — named the A Pad — would place a fracking wastewater injection well next to the community’s water treatment system.

This fracking wastewater injection well would be closer to homes than anywhere in Colorado.

Join Battlement residents and supporters for a Community Info Night to get answers this coming Wednesday, November 8, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Fire Station. Bring your friends and neighbors!

Garfield County Commissioners will hold a hearing on the proposals on November 14, beginning 9:00 a.m. at the Grand Valley Rec Center.

There will be a hospitality room with coffee and snacks. Citizen comments will likely begin around 11:00 a.m.

Please let them know if you can come and comment! Call Dave at 970-285-2263 or write to
