The recent start of drilling in the Garfield Creek State Wildlife Area by a rig readily visible from Interstate 70 is renewing concern about oil and gas development there, while serving as a reminder that the state doesn’t own the mineral rights beneath it.
“I thought it was pretty horrible,” Silt resident Laurie DeMent said by telephone, explaining her motivation in posting her concern on Facebook after the rig went up. She said her family previously has seen big flocks of turkeys and herds of elk where the rig is operating.
The Vermillion Basin of northwest Colorado, which has been set aside from drilling for natural gas hidden beneath, is absent from any plans by the Obama administration for national designation, U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said.
