Program Briefing - Suncor Oil Refinery
Tuesday February 15 2022 5:30 PM

https://zoom.us/j/93554671228


Please join us on February 15 to learn about the Suncor Oil Refinery; its effect on air quality in Denver and it's relevance to other threats to air quality.  Alex Valdez, Chair of the Colorado House Energy and Environment Committee will present.  

Located just west of I-270 on Brighton Boulevard in Commerce City, the Suncor refinery is Colorado's only major petroleum refinery. The refinery is divided into three plants: Plants 1 and 2 are a major supplier of gasoline and diesel fuel in Colorado, while Plant 3 is the state's main producer of asphalt. The refinery has been in operation since 1931.

Although the refinery is located within the city, most regulatory oversight of the facility is conducted by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Denver, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, has fought since the 1930s to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan. We neither support nor oppose candidates for office. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. The League:
  • Acts as a force to create positive, lasting change in our community
  • Empowers voters to protect their right to vote
  • Educates citizens and fosters dialogue on pertinent issues - from health care and climate change to openness in government
  • Strives to ensure that all votes are counted and all voices are heard
  • Works to preserve our constitutional rights
  • Partners with others to make democracy work
We believe that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship are essential for civic improvement. Our enduring vitality and resonance come from our membership, which is open to all people 16 years of age and older.
