BCAN hopes you can make it to this community meeting Tuesday evening. Come see where the huge oil projects are planned near Santa Maria and what the impacts would be.
Please read the flyer and email from the Sierra Club below:
Kern County-based oil companies are seeking permission toTRIPLE oil production in northern Santa Barbara County.
Proposals for 750+ new oil wells from AERA, ERG and PetroRock would use dirtier and riskier enhanced oil production methodsand drill through the Santa Maria Groundwater Basin, which provides water for 12 cities and over 200,000 people. These projects would also dramatically increase truck traffic, 24-hour light and noise pollution, and air pollution that can cause lung cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory hospitalizations, andpremature death.
