Health impact assessment released

Plans by Antero Resources to drill for natural gas in Battlement Mesa could have deleterious consequences for people living near the drill rigs, according to a health assessment by the Colorado School of Public Health, which also urged that the company “rapidly adapt new technology” to reduce emissions.

The assessment was presented today to the Garfield County Commission.

Air quality will be most affected during well-pad construction, well-completion and from truck traffic and could in some cases require medical treatment, the report said.
