ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced plans to auction 16,000 thousand acres of land for oil and gas development on and around the forested area that supplies water to Grand Junction and nearby Palisade. Natural gas drilling makes an extensive network of access roads and well pads. Communities asked the BLM to withdraw the leases for time allowance to plan protections for the water supply. The Grand Junction City council has dispatched Greg Trainor, manager for the Junction, to the auction to bid on the mineral rights.
