Health Studies

The below fact sheet, Human Health Risk Assessment for Oil & Gas Operations in Colorado, is linked to provide valuable details on the measures that Colorado oil and gas companies are held accountable to. The study was completed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and concludes all measured air concentrations were below short-and long-term safe levels.


Community Engagement

  • Last year, PDC made a $10,000 donation to the Windsor/Severance Fire Department.
  • PDC has been a long-time supporter of United Way of Weld County and their efforts in early childhood education in Weld County. Last year, PDC donated $100,000 to United Way of Weld County to support their Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), Envision Program, and their Weld County Diaper Bank.

Best Management Practices

  • Continuous air monitoring, enhanced noise and odor mitigation, sound walls to reduce noise, enhanced dust mitigation, emergency shutdown capabilities, and leak mitigation and prevention.
  • Devotion to pipeline connections, also resulting in reduced truck traffic to and from the pad.
  • Speed restrictions, regulator road maintenance, and restrictions of construction activities during high wind days will be implemented.
  • Light sources will be directed downwards and away from occupied structures nearby. Once the drilling rig and completion crews leave the site, there will be no permanently installed lighting on site.
