Monterey County to adopt Fracking Ordinance

The Monterey County Planning Department will present its “interim fracking ordinance” to the Monterey County Planning Commission on Wednesday, April 30th.

The ordinance serves to regulate but not stop fracking. Regulations mean that fracking will continue to expand. Regulations do not go far enough to protect our people, our water, our economy, and our climate. To protect us and our livelihoods, fracking must stop altogether.

A full show of support is needed on April 30th to request a 45-day period for public review before this “Well Stimulation Treatment Ordinance”, (Planning File Number REF130051), is recommended for adoption by the Board of Supervisors.

Speak out for a moratorium on fracking until the risks are fully analyzed to understand the impacts on agriculture, tourism, the environment, and the health and safety of workers and our communities.
