January 29, 2018: Noise Monitoring Report for the Common Completions Pad

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 three locations adjacent to the Completions Pad.

Crestone began well completion activities at the Completions Pad the week of September 11, 2017. The report details noise measurements collected during well completions activities, from October 14, 2017, through November 29, 2017. View the noise monitoring results (PDF) 

November 1, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for the Common Completions Pad

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. This report details noise measurements collected during well completions activities, from September 12, 2017 through October 14, 2017. The noise monitoring data were analyzed to evaluate noise levels at the four locations during Crestone's well completions activities.View the noise monitoring results (PDF).

November 1, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for Pratt Site

The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental, Inc. to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Pratt well site. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements at three locations adjacent to the well site. Pratt Site 1 is located approximately 350 feet to the south of the well site and was used to collect A-weighted noise measurements. Pratt Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 830 feet to the southeast of the well site. Waste Connections Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 5,100 feet to the southwest of the well site. This report details noise measurements collected during drilling activities, from August 1, 2017, through September 12, 2017, and compares these levels to the baseline data. View the noise monitoring results (PDF)

August 18, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for Pratt Site

The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental, Inc., to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Pratt well site. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements at two locations adjacent to the well site. Sampling Site 1 is located approximately 350 feet to the south of the well site and was used to collect A-weighted noise measurements. Sampling Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 830 feet to the southeast of the well site. Both A-weighted and C-weighted noise measurements were collected at Sampling Site 2. C-weighted noise was collected at Sampling Site 2 only, as Sampling Site 1 is not located near any occupied structures. View the noise monitoring results (PDF)

July 21, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for Waste Connections Site

The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental, Inc., to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Waste Connections well site. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements at two locations adjacent to the well site. Sampling Site 1 is located approximately 475 feet to the southeast of the well site and collected A-weighted noise measurements. Sampling Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 1,400 feet to the southwest of the well site. Both A-weighted and C-weighted noise measurements were collected at Site 2. C-weighted noise was collected at Site 2 only as Site 1 is not located near any occupied structures. View the noise monitoring results (PDF) from June 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017.

July 17, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for Woolley Becky Sosa & Morgan Hills Sites

The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Woolley Becky Sosa and Morgan Hills well sites. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements located to the north of the intersection of Fletcher Drive and Weld County Road 10-1/2 from June 12, 2017 at 7:00 a.m., to June 30, 2017 at 11:30 a.m.. Noise monitoring data was analyzed to determine whether citizens in the area were exposed to noise levels in exceedance of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Committee (COGCC) maximum permissible noise levels.

June 16, 2017: Noise Monitoring Report for Waste Connections

The Town of Erie has contracted with Pinyon Environmental to perform noise monitoring near the Crestone Peak Resources Waste Connections well site. Pinyon collected continuous noise measurements at two locations adjacent to the well site. Sampling Site 1 is located approximately 350-feet to the southeast of the well site and collected A-weighted noise measurements. Sampling Site 2 is located near a residential neighborhood approximately 1,400-feet to the southwest of the well site and collected both A-weighted and C-weighted noise measurements. Crestone began deploying vehicles and equipment to the Waste Connections well site at approximately 7:00 AM on April 25, 2017. This report details noise measurements collected from April 25, 2017 at 7:00 AM through May 31, 2017 at 7:00 PM. The noise monitoring data was analyzed to evaluate noise levels at the two locations during Crestone's well production activities. View the noise monitoring results (PDF).
