Community Members Sound Off on Bull Mountain Drilling Plan

March 14, 2015 –

Last month the BLM hosted a public meeting on the proposed Bull Mountain 146-well drilling plan at Paonia High School.  About 30 residents spoke out at the meeting and aired their concerns about traffic, water and air pollution, and the landslide-prone area that’s been eyed for drilling.

Local videographers David Jacobson and Pat Frank recorded the meeting so others could hear these concerns even if they did not attend.  Here’s the first few videos in this short series:
