Staff was made aware of a new drilling permit being processed with ADEQ at a site located about 80 miles east of Red Gap Ranch that proposes to use a drilling technique that is not fracking. A letter was drafted in coordination with Water Services and the City's Water legal counsel that identifies the City's concerns related to the permit. The letter was sent on August 27, 2020.
