Oil & Gas Injection Well Hearing. Help Protect Idaho’s Health, Safety, and Environment!
January 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The state of Idaho has asked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to establish an oil & gas wastewater injection program in Idaho. These injection wells have a history of causing earthquakes, contaminating aquifers, and threatening public health across the nation. This proposal raises serious questions about the safety of such a program in our state.
The EPA is taking public comment until January 11 on the proposal. Please submit comments and concerns via our action page at http://iorc.ourbase.us/civicrm/petition/sign?sid=16&reset=1 .
Also, please attend the public hearing on January 8th, beginning at 2:00 PM Mountain Time at the Banner Bank Building, 950 W. Bannock Street, Boise, Idaho. Help us protect Idaho’s unique way of life!
