Noise Monitoring Report for the Common Completions Pad

September 12 - October 14, 2017


The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental, Inc., to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Common Completions Pad. The Completions Pad site is used by Crestone for well completion activities for both the Waste Connections and Pratt well sites. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements at four locations adjacent to the well site. Completions Site 1 is located approximately 350 feet to the south of the Completions Pad and was used to collect A-weighted noise measurements from September 12, 2017, at 11:00 AM to October 14, 2017, at 7:00 AM. Waste Connections Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 3,475 feet to the southwest of the Completions Pad and was used to collect A-weighted and C-weighted noise measurements from September 12, 2017, at 11:00 AM to October 14, 2017, at 7:00 AM. Pratt Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 3,600 feet to the southeast of the Completions Pad and was used to collect A-weighted and C-weighted noise from September 12, 2017, at 7:00 AM to September 26, 2017, at 10:00 AM when measurement collection ceased at this location per the direction of the Town.

Completions Site 2 was selected by the Town to replace Pratt Site 2. Completions Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 2,430 feet to the south of the Completions Pad and was used to collect A-weighted and C-weighted measurements from September 26, 2017, at 11:00 AM to October 14, 2017, at 7:00 AM. C-weighted noise was not collected at Sampling Site 1 as is not located near any occupied structures. Crestone began well completion activities at the Completions Pad the week of September 11, 2017, and continued activities at this location throughout the reporting period. This report details noise measurements collected during well completions activities, from September 12, 2017, at 11:00 AM through October 14, 2017. The noise monitoring data was analyzed to evaluate noise levels at the four locations during Crestone’s well completions activities.
