WE NEED YOUR HELP! ACTI ON NEEDED BY 7/16/14!

Weld Air and Water is working to ensure that oil and gas drilling
does not negatively impact the health, safety, or well-being of the community.

MIDTOWN DIRECTIONAL PROJECT: 37 WELLS, 18 TANKS
Mineral Resources, Inc. has filed a massive oil and gas drilling
operation proposal, called Midtown Directional, located 1,300
feet from the Ponderosa Mobile home park, 640 feet from the
UNC family housing, 350 feet from A&R rentals and 1, 050 feet
from Jackson Field.
This site is very concerning in such close proximity to the
businesses and housing who will be faced with increased
health, safety, traffic, and noise issues. This location is NOT
suitable for a massive industrial operation.
HELP PROTECT OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITY; DEMAND
FOR BALANCED RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT!
