Join us to urge the Board of Supervisors to deny permits to E&B Natural Resources to expand and extend its drilling operation in Alameda County’s Livermore Valley.
E&B Natural Resources, a Bakersfield-based oil company, is just one step away from getting the go-ahead from the county for 10 more years of dangerous drilling in the Livermore Valley — this despite the company’s reckless track record of spills and accidents (48 since 2007!) that threaten public safety and the environment.
The permits would allow E&B to dispose of oil-drilling waste by injecting it into local aquifers. E&B also wants to nearly triple the area it can inject with wastewater, from 26 to about 70 acres. E&B’s operations use undisclosed chemicals, endangering groundwater that could be used for irrigation, landscaping, and possibly drinking water.
The oil company’s set of 10-year permits has already been approved by the zoning board, and now it’s up to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to stop it.
Please sign this petition urging them to take bold action and deny E&B’s permit application!
