Meeting Sandoval O&G Ordinance and Regional Fracking Expansion

  • Esther Bone Memorial Library 950 Pinetree Road Southeast Rio Rancho, NM, 87124 United States (map)

Bob Wessley the talk is on what attributes a Sandoval ordinance could contain, and why those attributes might be advisable. It will then be up to the Commissioners (P&Z and County), the industry paid lobbyists, and any vocal members of general public who choose to show up to decide how intensely to include each of those attributes.

Peg Breault will be speaking on the "Effects of Fracking on Human Health". “The threats to health associated with fracking include industrial-scale water consumption and contamination; air pollution, particularly by volatile organic compounds (VOCs); seismic effects; and the generation and management of large quantities of toxic liquid waste. In addition, fracking’s long-term impacts on freshwater aquifers are a significant threat to our limited drinking water supplies..." -- Physicians for Social Responsibility

Asha Canalos will be speaking on pipeline safety issues and potential public safety impacts on New Mexico Communities. 

We will be giving a overview on oil drilling production and development of fracking threats to the region. The Sandoval County Ordinance written by industry and OCD Industry oligarchs with no protection for drinking water and air, public health and safety. Once the P&Z Commissioners are seated by an illegal attempt to sit industry friendly P&Z board members the public meetings will start. We Need Your Support!
