Garfield County commissioners will ask the state to consider the cumulative impacts to residents of a proposal to allow one natural gas well for every 10 acres north of Silt. The Daily Sentinel writes that commissioners voted 2-1 today to intervene with the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission on an application by Antero Resources for 10 acres drilling density for a square-mile section of Silt Mesa.  This decision was made after many hours of public comment where residents voiced their concerns about  health and other impacts these drill sites will have.  The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission will consider Antero’s well density proposal Nov. 29.
