DescriptionThere is a frenzy of activity on the adjacent property, day and night, with dozens of workers, loud noises, and strange smells. The formal "hydraulic fracturing" hasn't even started yet. The pumping of fluids underground occurs later after the active drilling phase, which is occurring now. The active drilling phase could take weeks or months.
It seems particularly loud in the wee hours of the morning, and Perry and Nicole were unable to sleep there, even with the air conditioner on and the windows closed, We didn’t feel it was safe for my in-laws to stay at the farm, so we invited them to seek refuge on our couch in our Boulder apartment. But not everyone is so lucky.
We received no notice, and didn't know that anything was occurring until they started the drilling and Perry and Nicole heard it.
This can happen to anyone. It has happened to thousands of Colorado families and now it has happened to one of your members of Congress and his family.
