Protect Our Water: Ban Fracking and Limit Risky Oil Operations Initiative
by via Protect Monterey County
This initiative bans fracking, acidizing and other risky well stimulation treatments. These dangerous methods were used in 2008 to extract oil from the Monterey Shale Formation. It bans new wastewater injection wells and wastewater ponds and phases out existing wastewater injection wells and wastewater ponds. New oil and gas wells within Monterey County are banned, because any new drilling would rely on high risk methods which endanger our water, health and economy. This Initiative does not affect continued operation of the 1,500+ existing oil and gas wells in Monterey County.
