Complaint Issue
Issue:     RECLAMATION Assigned To:    Gary Helgeland Status:     Resolved     3/27/2013
Description: Photos represent the view that Anadarko left behind almost nine months, after ravaging the landscape at Beebe Draw Farms, east of Platteville in Weld County. As a residential community, this is the eyesore that neighbors have tolerated during since last Summer: a number of acres of nothing but blowing sand and dust. Any nutrients that may have existed in the soil disturbed by Anadarko's crews has long since been re-deposited on land miles away because it was never properly reclaimed when drilling ceased and equipment was removed. It has been our experience that Anadarko is alone in this kind of practice....we never have to worry about Encana or Noble not being good stewards of the environment. We'll leave it up to you folks to decide whether this type of behavior is: a) part of the corporate culture at this company, b) disrespectful of the surface owner, c) arrogance, d) carelessness, e) all of the above (or more)? We are tempted to forward this sad story to the media, but thought you people should have a crack at it first. Is that fair?
Resolution: Erosion has been addressed. No further issues were observed.
