This blog is about the oil and hydraulic fracture drilling 8,000 wells in proposal for Rio Rancho Estates, RioRancho and Zia Pueblo. We need to spread the word and get people to show up at the County of Sandoval meetings. The oil and gas ordinance is being driven by oil industry, and multinational investment banks.
The Aquifer when fracked
Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Public Information Forum on Stop Fracking Rio Rancho
The County Commission will be deciding whether to approve or deny Sandridge Energy and AMREPs application to drill and frack.
This forum is dedicated to giving our residents the tools to Stand Strong against fossil fuel production in our community.
The Forum participants will each speak about 10 minutes and cover, the political process in how to fight city hall selling water to the fossil fuel industry, what the County Commission needs to hear from you and what you can do to help communities throughout New Mexico by standing up against fracking and oil drilling.
The next steps will be discussed to initiate a moratorium and subsequent protection through ordinances. This was the second time in a year that oil and gas companies have tried to frack in the Rio Grande Valley Upper Albuquerque Basin.
We will also discuss the health effects other communities have had as a result of frack and oil drilling.
There are economic alternatives that can help households throughout the County and New Mexico.
This meeting is taking place before the County Commission Meeting to help people with talking points and actions that will sway the County Commission to deny the Sandridge Energy/AMREP application.
Make your voice heard. COME TO THE MEETING.
Protect our property values,
Protect our Children.

We need help setting up and breaking down and with AV equipment
