Recent Activities

Sept. 1, 2016 - On Aug. 25, Bridgeton commenced operation, through a contractor, of two sulfur dioxide monitors, similar to the department monitor at Rider Trail, I-70. Data from these monitors is available at:

Aug. 23, 2016 - Installation of the Heat Extraction System in the neck area continues. Heat Extraction Wells (HEW) 1, 2, 3, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 have been drilled. Drilling contractors are currently working on HEW 11 and plan to begin drilling on HEW 7 later this week, then move to drilling HEW 8 next week. 

May 24, 2016 - The department recently added a sulfur dioxide air monitor to the existing Rider Trail, I-70 monitoring site. The addition of a sulfur dioxide monitor at this site is to evaluate sulfur dioxide levels in the general area. Any sulfur dioxide concentrations monitored at this site may be due to several emissions sources in the area. If the monitor records sulfur dioxide at levels of concern, the department will gather additional information to try to determine which sources are causing or contributing to the levels of concern. The department will evaluate the levels recorded after one year of operation and decide whether or not it is appropriate to continue operating a sulfur dioxide monitor at this location.

The department maintains a summary report, which is updated weekly and is available at See the listing for “Rider Trail, I-70” for SO2 data from this monitor.
