Today, October 23, 2019, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) continued work repairing the Davis 43-6 plugged and abandoned well. The location of the well is shown here. In the process of continuing the excavation at the well site, COGCC uncovered a two-inch pipe that runs in an approximate north/south direction at a depth of 11 feet. COGCC staff believe this pipe was attached to the well casing. COGCC will bring in a larger excavator to expand the width of the hole in a northerly direction. The dirt will continue to be removed and trucked from the site for disposal.
Safety protocols continue to be followed including traffic control and air monitoring. The air monitoring did not indicate any emissions of concern. Graham Peak Way, from the trail crossing down to Middle Peak Way, as shown on this MAP, remains closed to traffic for the duration of this work. The well site has been secured for the night by COGCC. Broomfield staff will provide regular updates as the work continues.
