On September 17th and 19th EcoFlight conducted overflights over oil and gas operations that were impacted by extensive flooding in Weld County, Colorado after recent storms devestated the area. Until then, the media had not put much focus on the issue of oil and gas facilities and infrastructure that had been damaged and leaking toxic materials into the floodwaters. The following links are to some of the stories generated by the flights and the aerial images that EcoFlight took.
