Issues to Raise

Visual Quality

Even in areas without specific cultural significance, the ongoing presence of production equipment and the well sites themselves may destroy the scenic value of the area. Especially along major travel routes, or public lands that are unique or especially beautiful, the presence of oil or gas wells can be devastating to the vista. Check the land use plan for the area to determine what visual quality guidelines applies.
