Mesa Verde Status Summary:
Development actions planned and not yet approved by BLM.
Planned development actions approved by BLM but not constructed.
Construction of the planned location type.
There is an active rig on location drilling wells.
The well is drilled to a total depth and is in the final stages to bring well into production status (e.g. setting and cementing production casing, fracking).
Drilling and completion are final, the well is now producing, initial reclamation is complete.
The pad no longer has a producing well and the location will be reclaimed. Dirt work must be initiated within 6 months of last plugged well.
Reclamation Status Summary:
Acres Meeting Stds/Approved
Phase II interim reclamation will involve recontouring the site to maximize the extent of disturbance available for reclamation, leaving the minimum area necessary for routine production and maintenance activities or as necessary to accommodate BLM authorized development plans. Desired native or seeded vegetation will be established and self-sustaining on as much of the disturbance as practicable to minimize soil erosion, inhibit noxious and undesirable invasive weed establishment, minimize visual resource impacts, allow for the advance of successional processes, and provide specific wildlife habitat components over the productive life of the well pad or facility.
The location is entirely re-contoured to blend seamlessly with the surrounding landform and reseeded. No production or ancillary facilities remain. Final reclamation includes the establishment of vegetation representative of the native desired plant community in a healthy early seral state that will allow progression toward the climax community.
