Oil and gas workshop offered

| October 15, 2012

MARTINSBURG – Discuss the various aspects of oil and gas development and learn how your locality may want to make its own decisions, how to bring your voices together effectively to make them heard and  how other communities are doing the same.

Presenters Nathan Johnson, staff attorney for Buckeye Forest Council and Bill Baker, Frack-Free Ohio will be on hand to discuss permitting of horizontal wells and injection wells (for indefinite storage of toxic wastewater), distance required for setbacks between homes and drilling rigs, exclusions (locations off-limits for drilling), spreading of brine (wastewater) on roads, effects of increased road use and resulting damage, Mansfield’s Bill of Rights and the process of creating the bill.

Free and open to the public. Please join us on Thursday, Oct. 25, at Venture House, 22885 Divan Road, Martinsburg. Bring your supper and join others at a picnic from 6 to 7 p.m. Workshop will run from 7 to 9 p.m.
