Broomfield Health and Safety First Invites You to Sign Petition: “City of Broomfield: Do NOT Sell Our Water!”

Broomfield Health and Safety First (BHSF) is “a group of residents seeking to ensure that health and safety are Broomfield’s first priority on oil & gas decisions” who sponsored Charter Amendment 301.  BHSF is sponsoring a petition titled “City of Broomfield: Do NOT Sell Our Water!” that you can read and sign here.   

In an August 1 announcement from the City and County of Broomfield (CCOB), CCOB stated it would hold a special Council meeting on August 13 to consider whether to sell municipal water to Extraction for usage in mixing cement for drilling operations.  There is a CCOB calendar item for a special meeting at 5 pm – 6 pm but no agenda for this meeting with any proposed ordinance to amend the Operator Agreement has been posted yet.  You can continue to look here for that agenda containing the proposed ordinance.  You can read Broomfield Concerned’s blog on that August 1 CCOB announcement here, containing related facts and pertinent parts of the Operator Agreement. 

There has also been a subsequent related post by CCOB that you can read here.  As of August 11, the August 1 announcement from CCOB is no longer accessible on the Broomfield Oil and Gas page.
