Broomfield appreciates the support of the Governor’s Office and the guidance and ongoing assistance/oversight of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) in assisting our Oil and Gas Division to reduce the impact on our residents, who because of these joint efforts are no longer reporting that they are losing sleep during night time operations.
Extraction is now using quieter equipment for its milling and tubing operations at the Livingston Pad and the COGCC has been and will continue to be on-site at the Livingston Pad for the next few nights to ensure the quieter equipment is in place and being used. Noise complaints this weekend have been minimal, with no complaints overnight on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday nights.
“When it comes to resident suffering, it’s not solely a local or state government problem, it takes all of us working together to bring relief,” said City and County Manager Jennifer Hoffman. “We look forward to the continued efforts of both the government and the industry to navigate issues and find solutions for our community.”
It is crucially important as we are working towards minimizing the impact on our neighborhoods, for residents to submit formal concerns when they experience impacts from activities at oil and gas pads. Residents can submit concerns by phone at 720.887.3130 or online atBroomfield.org/ImmediateConcern.
Broomfield staff will follow-up on the complaints, for both public health and enforcement of the various agreements and regulatory requirements. This data has been, and will continue to be, used to gain the support of the COGCC to take immediate action and to maintain the current improvements in noise from the well pad.
