Complaint Issue
Issue:     Assigned To:    John Axelson Status:     Resolved     6/23/2011
Description: Weld County filed a complaint regarding the dumping of drilling fluids at a property owned by the New Hope Church @ 1900 AA Street in Greeley. Weld County inspected the location and did not believe the fluids were being applied as a beneficial soil amendment. Other materials such as concrete were being disposed on location and they believed the site was being used only for disposal.
Resolution: NOAV issued to Ranchers Exploration requiring them to remove any remaining drilling mud from the church property. Also required to document proper land application of the waste at new location.
