I found an interesting tidbit about the Parachute spill yesterday—OSHA got involved after a reporter asked OSHA if they were involved. CDPHE didn’t seem to be concerned about the health of the clean-up crew, but thanks to a reporter in Glenwood, they are now. Thank you, Dennis Webb, for digging into possible fines. Now let’s pressure CDPHE to do their job, which is protecting the health of both citizens and the environment.

The biggest cost comes from fixing the problem?  So, that doesn’t obviate the need for a meaningful fine.  Let’s review.  Leak (maybe) started around Dec.  Williams discovers in January but mistakes 10,000 gallons of spill for less than 42.  In March it gets reported again…

Incidents such as Parachute Creek and the Rifle leak are exactly why citizens of the North Fork Valley fought so hard and will continue to fight to prevent gas drilling and fracking around Hotchkiss, Crawford and Paonia.  We don’t want or need similar incidents polluting our organically centered valley.
