Commerce City Passes Moratorium On Fracking

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – There will no hydraulic fracturing in Commerce City for the next month.

The Commerce City City Council voted unanimously for the freeze Monday night. It gives the council more time to discuss concerns about the practice of pumping water and chemicals into the ground to extract gas.

The moratorium comes after fracking operations began near the Reunion development in November. But that operation is outside city limits and will not be affected by the moratorium.
