From the Delta County Independent:
The Delta County Commissioners are holding an oil and gas public information meeting this Saturday at Paonia High School from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Local residents interested in learning more about oil and gas leasing and development are encouraged to attend.
The morning sessions will include a presentation by David Noe, PhD, a senior geologist at the Colorado Geological Survey in Denver, on the geology of the North Fork Valley. Other sessions will include a panel discussion about the leasing and permitting processes for oil and gas exploration as well as an overview of regulations for hydraulic fracturing, water and air quality.
Presenters from the morning sessions will lead breakout sessions in the afternoon where the public can ask questions and learn more about the oil and gas leasing process, water, air quality, drilling, hydraulic fracturing, private land issues and current oil and gas activities.
Staff from the Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Geological Survey, Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Delta County, Delta County Health Department, U.S. Forest Service and industry representatives will participate in the meeting.
