GARFIELD COUNTY, CO – The Garfield County Energy Advisory Board (EAB) will host an educational program December 5, featuring information on the recently completed Phase III Hydrogeologic Study of the Mamm Creek Area.

The objective of the Phase III study was to gather additional data to clarify the nature of the hydrologic flow system and water quality in the study area, including evaluating the possible effects, if any, of oil and gas development on the Wasatch Formation water quality. Several years ago, the county completed Phases I and II of the Mamm Creek study.

Bohmann will also answer questions regarding the study. All components of the study are available online at, including the report text, figures, tables and appendices.

The Energy Advisory Board reports to the Garfield County Commission and was created to provide a forum for the public, the oil and gas industry, landowners and local government to engage in positive and proactive communication and actions that encourage responsible and balanced development of energy resources in Garfield County.
