EnCana is on the hot seat once again. The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission staff has found sufficient evidence to recommend an order finding violation for two contaminated water wells impacted by nearby gas wells operated by EnCana.COGCC commissioners will rule on the finding at a public hearing on both cases at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 11, at the Garfield County fairgrounds in Rifle. The COGCC commissioners will then decide on the amount of a fine, if any, will be imposed on EnCana, said hCOGCC hearings manager Tricia Beaver.EnCana has received a series of Notices of Alleged Vilation for contamination of the former Dietrich well and the Amos/Walker well both south of Silt. Continued sampling of both wells has shown that EnCanas remediation plans have not cleared up the problems and that nearby gas wells continue to be the source of comtamination.

I would wish a gym like that for every community, said Nancy Vidal, of Silt, who currently takes her 13-year-old gymnast to Grand Junction three times a week. Kids are going to be coming from everywhere for this kind of coaching.
