Sharyn: I’m Sharon Tipton. We live in Battlement Mesa, Colorado.
Ben: We’ve been here in Battlement Mesa for three years. About a year into living in our new home we discovered a company was planning on putting gas wells in our planned unit development (PUD).
Living in this PUD means we have to comply with all of these covenants to ensure the community looks good, but an oil and gas company can just put a well 500 feet from someone’s house. We found this to be completely wrong and decided to start checking into it some more and getting behind the fight to stop it.
