Fracking is a dangerous oil and natural gas drilling technique that could contaminate California's water, air and climate and endanger public health and wildlife like the California condor. Drilling is set to expand in our state even though it routinely employs chemicals like lead, arsenic, chromium 6 and benzene that go unmonitored and unregulated.
State officials don't even know where fracking is taking place.
Your voice is urgently needed at an upcoming workshop on fracking run by the Department of Conservation, right here in Ventura. Please join us in demanding regulations to protect our environment from this industry, which is associated with more than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination across the country.
What: California Department of Conservation workshop on fracking
When: Wednesday, May 30 at 7 p.m.
Where: Ventura County Board of Supervisors chambers,
800 S. Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA 93009
We still have time to safeguard California's environment from fracking contamination, but we need your help to make it happen.
