how does fracking impact Colorado?
“It’s in my backyard. One full year of noise lights and smells. Sick animals… I am under 800ft from 4 large fracking sites!!!!! With crazy vents!!! This is not good and safe for our community. It’s a shame.”
“I fully support continuous community air monitoring and consider it to be a wise and prudent investment to promote public health, safety, and welfare, now and in the future.”
“We are newer residents to Erie, and have been quite shocked by the air quality here, and the level of fracking going on in the area. If Erie is going to allow fracking, they need to also monitor the air for the people that live here.”
“I have had headaches since they started and trouble sleeping due to noise and vibration. I would ask the town to implement air quality monitoring to help keep O&G within regulation.”
“We left Erie because of the open-ended policy on fracking, lack of willpower to take a firm stance against oil and gas by the Erie board of trustees, and the dismantling of beautiful pristine space and the poor air quality.”

What is fracking?
how close is it to your home, school, or favorite park?
Currently, fracking operations are allowed to take place just 2000’ from homes, school buildings and school playgrounds. The industry has shown blatant disregard for public health and safety, and the current state regulatory body – the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) – has not provided responsible protective regulatory oversight to prevent inappropriate siting of toxic fracking operations adjacent to homes, schools and water sources.
