Complaint Issue
Issue:     GROUND WATER Assigned To:    Gary Helgeland Status:     Resolved     6/9/2011
Description: Bolder County Parks and Open Space representatives presented evidence showing impact to cropland from damage to existing ground water drainage system allegedly caused by EnCana during well site construction, drilling or subsequent operations.
Resolution: In April 2011 the COGCC retained a consulting firm to investigate the issues at the Deason #11-36 and also the Caldwell #14-25 well site (05-013-06512) located in the SW/4 SW/4 of Section 25. The investigation was conducted by AgriTech Consulting (AC) in April 2011 and final report submitted May 2011. The investigation was conducted by Ron Miller agronomist/Certified Crop Advisor and Gerald Knudsen a Colorado Registered Professional Engineer. AgriTech found evidence of historic crop damage or weak crops existing in similar patterns as those mentioned in your complaint. The investigation also noted that the White Rock Irrigation Canal is likely a major contributor to high groundwater in the area. The Panama Reservoir is also a potential contributor to groundwater. The issues included in the BCPOS complaint do not appear to be oil and gas related. A copy of the report which provides more information about possible causes and contributing factors to the problems in the Caldwell and Deason fields is attached.
