Digi,As is normal with Dominant Lib. Media coverage, the whole story is not explored or reported.- First of all, Weld County has been a "depressed economic zone" for 30+ years. Farmers and ranchers sell off chunks of their least productive, arrable land to developers in order to make up for poor crops or low sales.- Developers then subdivide it into 5 to 35 acre "hobby farm" plots and advertise it as prime land for a "dream home in the country." Those plots are sold to "Californi-can'ts".(sorry, but they are a large percentage of the idiots who purchase the land.) - These folks come in-state with a large chunk of funds from selling their land in California (or wherever!), ready for semi-retirement and they buy a chunk of land without researching ANYTHING!The developers do little or nothing to improve the land....They cut dirt road access and pay to have electricity to the plots and that is it!...Water, septic, and gas have to be put in. That normally means drilling a water well, digging a septic system and buying a 500 or 1000 gal propane system.Here is the rub...These folks built their little house on the prairie not 300 yards from the natural gas well head!!!!!!!!(DUH?!?!?!?)All of Northern Colorado sits atop a huge deposit of natural gas and oil....in pockets at varying depths. The geological strata under the Front Range topsoil is pretty cracked fractured from the uplift caused by the collision of the two continental plates that form the Rocky Mountains. Water and gas and oil don't always stay where they are supposed to stay!!!!!!!In this case, yes, a natural gas leak from a pipeline, looks like the culprit. HOWEVER!!!....that has yet to be proved! And the Public Service Co-Op is going to pay for "fixing" the problem rather than having it go to litigation.It will be cheaper for them and no nasty PR problems!
That would be disturbing.MITX
