The Stamp Well operating northwest of Union Reservoir has earned a passing grade with regulators.
Despite complaints from residents about the work going on at the well site from July 2019 to March, the operation has been in accordance with state regulations and an agreement between the city and TOP Operating and Cub Creek Energy.
The determination was made after a check with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and Longmont special counsel on oil and gas issues, said Jane Turner, Longmont’s oil and gas coordinator.
“There have been no violations,” Turner told city council this week.
TOP Operating found contaminated soil at the Stamp Well after discovering a leaking water tank at the site, Turner said.
TOP removed the 100-barrel water tank and the water it contained, she said, adding the contaminated soil has been replaced with clean soil.
Turner said the leak and the contaminated soil did not appear to be a threat to nearby residents. TOP is scheduled to make a remediation report to the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission by Aug. 7.
