Garfield County Energy Advisory Board considers Mamm Creek study

RIFLE — The Garfield County Energy Advisory Board (EAB) will host an educational program Thursday, featuring information on the recently completed Phase III Hydrogeologic Study of the Mamm Creek Area. The program will include a presentation by David Bohmann, operations manager with Tetra Tech, the consulting firm that conducted the Phase III Mamm Creek study.

The objective of the Phase III study was to gather additional data to clarify the nature of the hydrologic flow system and water quality in the study area, including evaluating the possible effects, if any, of oil and gas development on the Wasatch Formation water quality. Several years ago, the county completed Phases I and II of the Mamm Creek study.

Bohmann will also answer questions regarding the study. All components of the study are available online at, including the report text, figures, tables and appendices.

Citizens are invited to participate. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. followed by the program promptly at 6 p.m. at the Rifle Branch Library. Please RSVP if attending the dinner by calling 970-625-5915.
