Concerns with Oil & Gas Drilling in the Community:

Health: Effects of poor air quality resulting from
toxic emissions and volatile organic compounds
emitted during the drilling and ongoing extraction
process exacerbates respiratory problems
and creates potential long-term health risks from
unknown cumulative impacts.

Safety: Possible spills and explosions of flammable
and hazardous chemicals in close proximity to our
homes, schools, and businesses. Inadequate
emergency response plan.

Traffic: Increased traffic, industrial truck traffic and
flammable/hazardous material transport. Increased
risk of accidents, including with inexperienced
student drivers, which may result in fatalities and
toxic chemicals spills. Flow of traffic in the area with
the surge of industry related traffic.

Community: This high intensity drilling operation
will affect the school, local residents and
businesses, and future developments in the area.
Elevated noise levels. Increased use and
contamination of city municipal water that cannot be
reclaimed/recycled for any other use. Wastewater
storage, disposal and injection well concerns
including earthquakes.
