To mitigate potential impacts to the Collier Hills subdivision, a sound wall would also be constructed along the south end of the pad (full sound wall wrap will be used, with additional sound panels along the southern pad edge). KMG intends to install permanent visual mitigation along the south side of the Mae J 14-8HZ pad, and is in discussions to confirm what the permanent visual mitigation measures would be.

Pit Level Indicators: All storage tanks used for active drilling operations (used in lieu of pits) contain pit level monitors with Electronic Drilling Recorders (EDR). KMG uses EDRs with pit level monitor(s) and alarm(s) for production rigs. Basic level gauges are used on tanks utilized for the surface rig.

Noise: Sound surveys have been conducted on each rig type and are utilized to anticipate any additional effective noise mitigation once a drilling rig is determined. A full sound wall wrap will be used on the Mae J 14-8HZ pad. Straw bales and SK8 (portable sound panels) may also be set along the southern edge of the pad. Should technological advancements allow for better noise mitigation at the time of drilling and completion operations on this location, Kerr-McGee will re-evaluate the most effective method at that time.

As a part of planning this proposed location, Kerr-McGee will hold multi-disciplinary Surface Impact Planning Meetings regarding the impacts and mitigations associated with this proposed location. The toll-free hotline number and email for the Anadarko Colorado Response Line will be posted at the entrance to the lease access road for stakeholders during drilling and completion operations at this proposed location. Courtesy Notifications will be sent to impacted stakeholders prior to drilling operations and again prior to completions operations, providing contact information for the Anadarko Colorado Response Line and online resources

604c.(2).W. Site-Specific Measures: KMG maintains a Storm Water Management Plan that assesses erosion control for every KMG operated location. This location will be added to this plan once construction begins. During active construction, drilling, and completions, with personnel on location, daily inspections will occur. During non-active, but while under construction, site inspections will occur every 14 days or after major rain events. When construction is completed and the Location is on production, site inspections will occur every 28 days with additional inspections after major rain events. During construction, stormwater features will be checked more frequently (up to daily, depending on the intensity of construction activity). These construction checks will not be formally documented, since they occur as part of construction oversight, and minor issues will be corrected with no further documentation. If and when larger issues are noted in these construction checks, the associated corrective actions would be documented and closed out, as required under our approved area-wide permit. Examples include ditching and berming and installation of sediment catch basins as needed

KMG currently plans to use the water-on-demand system on this location which is a network of over 140 miles of underground pipeline that stretches the length of the 20-mile by 30-mile field to source and transport water to completions crews. This system eliminates more than 2,000 truck trips per day, also reducing associated concerns of traffic, noise, emissions and dust.
