Add comment on:Statewide Fracking Environmental Impacts Report Comments Due
The very real potential for cumulative impacts under the 'protected water' and 'aquifer exemptions' clause, added to the SB 4 Well Stimulation Regulations, by Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources DOGGR, after close of comments, Dec. 24, 2013 can be viewed as a lease-held lock down on future water resources of the North State and Northern Coastal Region. Anywhere in the State, where there exists a remote groundwater basin or sub-basin aquifer in close proximity to Natural Gas leases and reservoirs as in Northern California, or oil deposits off the North Coast. Once an aquifer is contaminated it can't be undone, except at great cost.
