Ursa Resources has submitted their application to drill 53 gas wells within the boundaries of Battlement Mesa. This is the first of four "phases" though which Ursa seeks to develop the mineral resources under our community. From accidents to health concerns to traffic and noise, there are many impacts from large scale oil & gas development that we can expect as the project is developed. If you are concerned about this plan & have questions, join us for a community meeting where we will walk you through the stages of this process and how you can have a voice.
