Met property owner at 47021 County Road 95, Briggsdale, CO 80611 who gave COGCC permission to inspect property. Observed area in flat field to north of residence where bentonitic drilling fluids had been applied. It appeared that application had been done in compliance with COGCC Rule 907.d.(3)B with the exception of 10-days to incorporate. Landowner thought the fluids had been applied in December 09' and indicated they planned on incorporating fluids into native soil as soon as weather allowed. Fluids had dried and there did not appear to be any threat of off-site migration.
