In an effort to expand its mission and further educate the people of Colorado on responsible oil and gas development, the Piceance Energy Action Council (PEAC) is growing and changing its name. PEAC is now CREAC -- the Colorado Rural Energy Action Committee.
"We understand that oil and gas development is statewide and we need to expand our mission to educate people throughout Colorado about the industry, its impact and decades-long safety record," says Keira Bresnahan, western Colorado director. For more information, she can be reached at 970-250-9052.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
