ANOTHER OIL & GAS EXPLOSION UNDERSCORES IMMEDIATE NEED FOR PROP 112
THREE WORKERS INJURED IN WELD COUNTY OIL TANK BATTERY EXPLOSION
DENVER — Early this morning, three workers were injured when a significant fire broke out at an oil and gas site in Briggsdale, CO in rural Weld County. Two workers were rushed to the hospital with injuries while a third suffered severe burns and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. Colorado Rising – the grassroots campaign behind Prop 112 – put out the following statement on today’s near-tragedy:
Colorado Rising is powering the grassroots movement to pass Proposition 112 – a common-sense measure that will protect public health & safety by creating a 2500 foot buffer zone between new oil & gas operations and our homes, schools, and water sources.
