Sit-in on Pinedale Anticline Draws 55

Laramie, WY – A sit-in against high ozone levels in the Pinedale area yesterday drew about 55 protesters. They convened at a Questar drilling location on the Pinedale Anticline.

The protest was an effort to call attention to the proposed drilling plan on the anticline that some residents say would further endanger public health. The Bureau of Land Management is currently reviewing comments on the Pinedale Anticline proposal.

The Wyoming Department of Evnrionmental Quality has issued five ozone warnings in the Pinedale area this winter.
