We’re convinced that hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, just isn’t feasible in San Miguel County. Water is a major component to this method of oil-and-gas drilling, and some undisclosed chemicals get mixed in to contaminate the water, so it ruins this most valuable of natural resources. For that reason alone, we can’t imagine the county commissioners passing a toothless ordinance to regulate this method of extraction, and we expect that they won’t.
