The Carmel Valley Association Board of Directors, at their meeting on February 20, approved a statement endorsing a moratorium on fracking in Monterey County.
Statement from the Carmel Valley Association Board of Directors:

It is the mission of the Carmel Valley Association (CVA) to preserve, protect and defend the natural beauty, resources and rural character of Carmel Valley.

In furtherance of this mission, the Board of Directors of the CVA hereby urges the Monterey County Board of Supervisors to impose a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and other enhanced oil and gas drilling techniques throughout Monterey County, until such time as a full scientific evaluation and environmental impact studies clearly show that any such proposed drilling technique will have no adverse impact on the water supply, air quality, seismic activity, traffic, noise, or the beauty, resources, and rural character of Carmel Valley and the surrounding areas of the County of Monterey.
