  • Mission:
  • Citizens for a Healthy Community works to protect people's health and their environment from irresponsible oil and gas development in the Delta County region of Colorado.

  • Overview:
  • Delta County and the surrounding lands are a special place, special because this place is our home. It’s where we choose to create our future, raise our families, build our businesses and connect with the land. Like many who live here, visitors come to this corner of Colorado’s Western Slope to tread into the hills, take in the rural lifestyle, pick a peach, hunt or cast a line in our clear streams and rivers.

    But our surrounding lands, the watersheds that supply our irrigation and drinking water, our communities and our health are threatened by natural gas drilling.

    In Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas and other places where gas drilling and fracking (the process of injecting fluids and chemicals deep underground to release gas) has occurred, water is contaminated, smog is common and miles of roads scar the land.

    We have grown to over 300 members in our rural part of Colorado. Our board consists of farmers, wine makers, small business owners, and other concerned residents.

  • History:
  • Citizens for a Healthy Community was organized in 2009 by a group of concerned Delta County residents who believe strongly in protecting this unique place from these threats posed by oil and gas drilling. We received our non-profit 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS in 2010.
