§Defend Measure Z

DOGGR and the State Water Resources Control Board Hearing


The Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) and the State Water Resources Control Board will hold a hearing to grant permits giving Big Oil new and expanded exemptions for toxic wastewater injection into our Monterey County aquifer AND to obtain immediate US EPA approval of the exemptions by February 15, 2017. Exemptions would allow oil operators to continue dumping toxic waste into our aquifers, despite voter approval of Measure Z.

These pending exemptions include the Lombardi and Aurignac Sands aquifers and cover more than 110 square miles near San Ardo in Monterey County.
