The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has made a decision that has upset both environmentalists and drilling companies.
This weekend an oil company will set up a drilling rig between two schools in Erie.
A group of Colorado mothers hand delivered 21,000 petitions from across the country to the Denver headquarters of Encana Oil and Gas. They want fracking stopped.
A group of concerned parents are trying to educate the public about the potential danger of fracking near two schools. The group wants a temporary hold on the process until it is deemed safe.
Some parents in Erie have comprised a group called “Erie Rising.” They say their issue with an approved fracking project near two of their schools is just the beginning of their fight.
