THIS JUST IN — FROM https://www.cfrog.org/

Help to extend the moratorium protecting water in the Oxnard Plain.

Please contact your county supervisor TODAY and ask them to extend the moratorium which prohibits new cyclic steam projects in the vicinity of the Fox Canyon aquifer. The vote is Tuesday, Nov. 5.

U.S. Geological Survey scientists have found petroleum-related gases in potable water in the Fox Canyon aquifer system near steam injection and wastewater disposal wells in the tar sands there. The study suggests that the oil production may be contaminating the wells. The USGS scientists have asked for more studies.

We have no reason to trust that oil operations in this area will be conducted properly. The county has found multiple permit violations and nullified the zoning clearance.
Questions? A fact sheet on the ordinance can be found here.

Ask your friends in other districts to call or email before the vote on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 3 p.m.

Per County Counsel:
“The USGS found indications that thermogenic petroleum-related gases are migrating into the potable water aquifers of the Fox Canyon aquifer system in the vicinity of steam injection and wastewater disposal wells. The study suggests that oil production involving steam injection may be causing or contributing to the migration of petroleum-related gases to, and the contamination of, the potable water aquifers. The USGS has indicated that additional study and assessment are needed regarding the issue.”

Please join in this urgent show of concern for our water and our health and safety…the most precious resource of all is at stake.

Stop the #FakeNationalEmergency! Presidents’ Day Protest Ventura
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2474989142574688/

This is a NATIONAL EVENT!

DATE: President’s Day—Monday, 2/18 from noon to 1:30pm

LOCATION: The corner of Victoria and Telephone in Ventura in front of the Government Center (800 S Victoria Ave, Ventura)

DETAILS: Bring your flags, signs, dress in red, white, and blue – and show what real patriots look like!

Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency. This is an illegal power grab. In crisis moments like this, how the citizenry responds in the immediate aftermath can shape the course of our country’s history. That’s why MoveOn members and allies are launching hundreds of events all across the country.

Together, we will say NO to Trump’s power grabs, NO to his border wall, NO to xenophobia, and NO to HATE. Trump’s undemocratic power grab to secure his border wall is a direct attack on our democracy.

#FakeNationalEmergency is now in full swing.
