Garfield County has planned a community meeting as an opportunity for local residents and officials to visit with and ask questions of federal and state regulatory agency staff about the ongoing hydrocarbon contamination investigation and remediation efforts near a Williams gas plant north of Parachute. Hydrocarbons were first discovered in groundwater near Parachute Creek March 13. A panel of representatives from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Garfield County Public Health, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will attend the meeting to answer questions, review each agency’s role in the investigation and cleanup process, and address potential public and environmental health concerns. The meeting will be Monday April 29, at 6 pm, at the Grand Valley Fire Protection District Building, at 0124 Stone Quarry Road in Parachute. Residents who are not able to attend may contact Garfield County Oil and Gas Liaison, Kirby Wynn, at 970-625-5905, and he will ask their questions of the panel and offer replies back via email the day following the meeting. A resource page is posted online at www.garfield-county.com.
