Castle Valley Comments – Feb. 13, 2020

There was a lot of public clamor in the valley 35 years ago this month when the Bureau of Land Management and Conoco Petroleum Company announced a proposed exploratory well at the base of Parriott Mesa just off the Pace Hill Road. Much of the agenda of the Castle Valley Property Owners Association monthly meeting was devoted to a question and answer session with officials from the BLM and Conoco. The BLM district manager stated that written comment would be accepted and a decision would be made 35 years ago this week.
