The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors is holding a public hearing on the Appeal of the Planning Commission's decision to approve the Santa Maria Energy Oil Drilling and Production project and the project EIR. The oil company proposes to drill 136 oil and gas wells just south of Orcutt using a cyclic-steaming process, construction of a 3-mile crude oil pipeline and construction of an 8-mile recycled water pipeline.
