Ban fracking on the Central Coast


Environmental activists have raised concern over fracking in SLO County. Currently, we are waiting to hear whether or not the Environmental Protection Agency will consider the application for aquifer exemptions in Price Canyon. County residents are fearful that the fracking will cause potential health impacts to residences in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, including the creation of toxic waste in our water and land. That is why it is important to raise awareness about the proposed oil wells and aquifer exemptions from the Arroyo Grande Oil Field. This request can be denied by the federal EPA if there is documented proof of air and water pollution. If anyone knows about this type of pollution, please come forward and detail it to the federal EPA, as soon as possible. As a resident of Pismo Beach, I live only 3 miles from the Arroyo Grande Oil Field. I want to put this important issue on the November ballot. You can help save SLO and Santa Barbara counties from the nasty business of fracking. Please sign my petition: change.org/p/united-states-epa-ban-fracking-in-san-luis-obispo-county.
