Long Beach: Public Meeting on Fracking

9:15 AM PDT on June 11, 2012

June 12 and 13: Learn more about State Regulations and Fracking. Does the word “fracking” give you the heebie jeebies? It should, given that there no regulation in place that protects us from any potential harmful effects of the practice. The more I learned about the practice in the Baldwin Hills (see here and here), the more disturbed I became. Get involved in holding corporations accountable for the drilling practices in the Baldwin Hills area by attending one of the upcoming workshops and helping shape future regulation. The Department and the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) will be on hand to listen to concerns and take recommendations. The workshops will be held Tuesday, June 12, 7:00 pm: City Council Chambers, 9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232 and Wednesday, June 13, 7:00 pm: Cal State University Long Beach – Student Union Building, 1212 N. Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90815
