Hi all,

The Denver Post newspaper ran a article on June 8th, 2000,
of a injection well to dispose of brine water 14,000 feet into
the earth.  Seems there has been some 1500 mostly very
small associated quakes since 1991.  The recent 4.3 quake
has brought with it changes in operation.  See:

If you run into problems with the above, go to:
and add on the "0608a" to the location and hit the enter

Mention is made of Dave Wolny at Mesa State College in
Grand Junction, Colorado.  Dave is often approached by
the local news media there for notes in his regional area.

Its a interesting article on the attempt to reduce salt in the
Colorado River Basin.  Not mentioned, but historically,
other injection wells in Colorado, have also created quakes.

Take care,
