Dr. Roxanna Witter on the Battlement Mesa Health StudyJuly 10, 2012
A Health Impact Assessment initiated by Garfield County Commissioners and residents of Battlement Mesa, where Antero plans to drill 200 gas wells, was dropped before completion. The study by the Colorado School of Public Health was caught up in a swirl of controversy and politics propelled by the agendas of industry, opponents, residents and county commissioners. The assessment and county air monitoring systems are of themselves groundbreaking. Today on NRG with MG, we'll revisit the study with its author, Dr, Roxana Witter of the Colorado School of Public Health, in conversation with KDNK's Marilyn Gleason.
