OUR VISION

We envision a day when…

  • Delta County Region’s food, air, and watersheds are no longer threatened by large-scale industrial oil and gas operations;

  • Ensuring the protection of human health and the environment is the foundation of our state and federal laws;

  • Elected officials, agency personnel, and citizens use science as the basis for decision-making;

  • Regulatory agencies err on the side of caution and protecting public health by denying a proposed action when scientific uncertainty exists regarding the potential harm of the action; and

  • One industry is not allowed to supplant another (i.e, invasive gas and oil development does not have the right to ruin agricultural and tourism-based industries).

Our Goal

To Prevent The Industrialization of Delta County With Oil and Gas Operations


Our Focus

Prevent New Leasing and Oppose Developments that Impact the Region


Challenge or Minimize Impacts of Existing or Proposed Development on Existing Leases


Our Values

  • Citizens have the right to clean air, soil, and water free from toxins and pollutants.
  • We believe in an energy policy that transitions away from the use of heavily-polluting fossil fuels such as oil and gas, towards clean, renewable forms of energy and increased energy efficiency.
  • We operate with the support of sound science, recognizing the evidence that human activities are causing the climate to change, and that we must do our part to stop and mitigate these changes to protect the quality of life of future generations.
  • We believe in an active and empowered citizenry.
  • We will actively pursue partners that support our goals.
  • We support the use of the precautionary principle. The Precautionary Principle states that if an action or policy has suspected risk of causing harm to the public or to the environment, in the absence of a scientific consensus that harm would not result, the burden of proof falls on those who advocate taking the action. Without such proof, the action would not be allowed to go forward.
